I Love Trucks! by Philemon Sturges, illus. by Shari Halpern, now in paperback, shows bright and colorful black outlined illustrations of a tow truck, a street sweeper and a backhoe in action. From the same team and in the same format ("I like trains that hoot and roar/ as they rumble by my door"), I Love Trains! demonstrates a flatcar carrying a veiled massive airplane ("secret stuff that's under wrap"), among other cargo. The books show the featured trucks and train cars on the endpapers.

PreSchool-For toddlers with an insatiable appetite for trucks, this is a perfect choice. Vehicles that crawl, roll, dig, dump, mix concrete, gobble trash, and do a multitude of other things are depicted in simple rhyming language and big, bold illustrations outlined in black. On the front and end pages are facts about different kinds of trucks that will fascinate slightly older children. A book that's similar in style to Byron Barton's Trucks (Crowell, 1986) and sure to be popular.
