Beep Beep! This is a really sweet book that my 2 year old and 1 year old both love. It's just short enough to keep their attention but they want it read to them over and over. This book has a great lesson in it about friendship and helping someone in need while also reinforcing the farm animals and their sounds that they make. I gave this as a gift to a 2 year old boy and his mother said it's the first book that he would actually sit down and let her read all the way through to the end. I highly recommend this book to anyone with a toddler.

This book is chockful of excellent textual sound effects (audio quality depends upon the reader, of course). The little truck beeps its horn and numerous animals sound their moos, quacks, clucks, peeps, etc. A great read for young children, and a valuable tool for teaching animals and animal sounds. In addition, the story has great rhyme and rhythm and contains a lesson about nurturing relationships with others. Originally, I had borrowed this book from the library, but I loved it so much that I bought it for my 5 mth old son for Christmas. My daughter is 2, and she LOVES this book. After a reading, she always says, "Again?"

This is currently my favorite childrens book that we own for my 15-month old. Fantastic artwork, words that are so perfectly lyrical you can sing them, and a sweet little story about friends who help each other out.

As a grandma babysitting four days a week for two grandsons (ages 15 months and 26 months) in two different households each with tons of books it seems I am reading constantly... Both grandsons love this book and I thoroughly enjoy reading it - again, and again and again and....This book is sure to be a classic. I can't imagine a child not loving it.

This is a nice book with an easy rhyming scheme that flows nicely when read aloud. for the younger child it has animal sounds that can be 'hammed up' and mimicked. For the older child it has a moral thread: bullies do NOT get ahead in life. They get 'mired' in their own foolishness.

My daughter (2.5 years old) and I both love this book. The illustrations are amazing and the rhyming verse is cute, engaging and easy to read. The moral to the story is obvious and something that every kid needs to learn.

I bought this book when my son was 21 months old. He LOVED everything about the book. It combines his love for trucks and animals into one. It also teaches how to be nice to others and how to work as a team. I highly recommend it!!

This is such a great book. It rhymes, it has a fun story, there are lots of animal sounds, and there's a lesson about helping. It really couldn't get better. The ONLY reason I give it four stars is because currently I like it more than my 16-month-old son. Actually, he does really like the page where the big "rude" dump truck says "HONK, coming through...!" I think I've read that one about 40 times. I think this is a really great book though and I'm looking forward to reading it and talking about it with my son as he gets older.

My daughter and I love this book so much, I've bought at least half a dozen copies for friends with little toddlers. The illustrations are gorgeous, and the rhyming, rhythmic text is just perfect. Blue is a friendly little truck who always greets the animals he passes. One day a big rude dump truck comes through, yelling, "I've big important things to do! I haven't got time to pass the day with every duck along the way!" His tires get stuck in some mud, and he calls for help but no one comes. Then comes the little blue truck to help but he gets stuck too. When he beeps his horn and calls for help, all the animals come running to help. They all push as hard as they can, and soon the trucks are free! The dump truck thanks Blue and says, "Now I see a lot depends on a helping hand from a few good friends." The book has terrific messages about the importance of being polite and kind, helping others, and working together. It's also a great introduction to animal sounds. Five stars!

We bought this for our 22-month old son a few months ago and we absolutely love this book. It has a great message and the meter is catchy. It's all about the little blue truck being friendly to everyone he sees and how his friends come help him out when he needs it. We would like to install in our children a sense of comraderie and kindness towards others and this book fits the bill. My son and I read the book together and he's learned all the things the animals say and that the little blue truck says, "BEEP!". We love this book!
