Illus. in full color. Preschool truck lovers can follow Big Joe through a typical day's work. The marvelously detailed paintings culminate in a double-page spread that labels every conceivable working part of a tractor-trailer rig.

I loved this book as a kid 25 years ago, and now I love reading it to my 20-month old son. My son loves Joe, too, and wants to read it over and over. Joe seems like such a friendly, hard-working fellow, and he's a wonderful example for kids. The illustrations are about the best I've ever seen in a children's book, so good, in fact, I sometimes pick it up even after my son goes to bed!

I, too, fondly recall having this book read to me by my father as a child. Now I'm a father, and I'm reading it to my 2 year old sons (the same copy!). The story line is simple but not patronizing, the illustrations are busy and colorful, and the kids love learning about trucks as the story unfolds. How else could a 2 year old not only know what an "air filter" is, but know that it sticks out the top of the hood to collect air?

We purchased this book for our son who is now 14, I saved all his baby books, and now we've got a new son, 19 months..both of them have enjoyed this book immensely! The cut-away view of the truck is wonderful, the illustrations so detailed and accurate..this book is one of the best out there for truck- loving toddlers...a must have, and a classic in our house.

I have read this book at least 100 times to my son Bjorn. And I still enjoy reading it!!! I think that says somthing of the quality of the thing. Bjorn is now 4 years old and we started when he was about 2.5 years old. The book has very good illustrations, detailed enough to be interesting even after a hundred times! We usually start to look at the x-ray drawing of the truck, talking of where the radiator is and whats it for, why there is a fire extinguisher beside the drivers seat etc, etc...
I love it.

When my brother was little, this was his favorite book. It is detailed, in pictures and discriptions, with plenty to fuel the imagination. I remember reading it to him, and he learned it so well that we could leave words out and he would fill them in as we read it.
I am a mother of a little boy of my own, now, and was thrilled to discover it was still in print! I am reading it to my own son, who already enjoys it and gets it out to look at himself.
If you have a toddler boy, be sure to keep a copy of this book in your home library! They will love it!

A great book! My 19-month old son is another second generation "Big Joe". He asks me to read this to him almost every night..and I can remember reading this book with my dad 26 or so years ago. We read all the time, but Big Joe's Trailer Truck is the only one I remember after all these years.

I used to read this book everytime I had to use the bathroom when I was 2 years old. THis book stuck in my head for the past thirty years cause I could not find it anywhere and I always remembered this book as the "Hi man book" when I was younger. I was so glad I found it finally. $19.99 is a steal to me. I really wished that this book was re-issued just to have it in the children's book areas of the book stores, its a great book to read to the younger ones who still have dreams of what they want to become and create a world of interest to their growing minds.

My son (now 38) loved this book when he was a kid. I suggested giving his old copy to a grandson (of another child of mine). "No, I want it," he said. Out of print now, but available from third parties. Some of the prices quoted are astounding, but I waited until a reasonably-priced copy in good condition became available.
