Celebrate the beauty of springtime with Little Blue Truck! Young fans will love finding all sorts of baby animals beneath the flaps in this delightful novelty board book. Beep! Beep! Peep!
"Schertle and the late McElmurry’s lightly anthropomorphic blue truck returns for a joyful springtime lift-the-flap outing. As the Little Blue Truck travels through an idyllic farm landscape, readers can look beneath large flaps to discover newborn animals underneath (“Who’s out swimming in a line?/ Yoo hoo, Duck and ducklings nine!”). The cheerful scenes offer plenty of opportunities for animal identification and counting (Sheep has just given birth to twins; 10 piglets share a muddy sty with Mama Pig) and a closing scene brings together all the little ones for a festive finale that sees them decked out in floral garlands. Up to age 3. (Jan.) " Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
