Format: Hardcover
My son and I read and reviewed this book for Mother Daughter Book Reviews. Here's what we thought:

SON SAYS:

This book is all about trucks. I love the cover and the pictures inside the book because you get to bounce them, lift the flaps, turn them, slide them, and pull them. It's a lot of fun. I love everything about this book because I can play with it, but my favorite page is the "tar page" because it's really sticky. I can turn the page by sticking my finger in the tar. There is nothing I didn't like about it. But there's one part I was scared of - the half cats in the army crew truck. I was scared something was wrong with them. [MOM: We live withe 2 cats; he was very concerned about the cats in the picture.] There were some kinds of trucks I had never seen before like the snow plough [MOM: Living in Vancouver we don't have those!], the milk truck, and a tar truck. I want to read this book every single day. I think everybody in the whole world would love this book. I want to give this book 5 and 3/4 stars, but my Mom won't let me.

MOM SAYS:

My Thoughts:

We don't often review books for toddlers, but when my son opened up the package that came in the mail for him and discovered this book, he was beyond excited! He plays with this delightful, fun-filled book every single day. And, to remind you... he's 6!! Well, if truth be told, we all play with it - it's that much fun!

The physical book itself is very sturdy featuring an extra-thick hardcover back and front, tough enough to withstand the handling of the most overzealous 6 year-old toddler. The individual pages are quite robust as well and appear to even be drool-resistant (we didn't test that).

Every once in a while, a patron will ask me, "where are your pop-up books"? My general answer is, "in the trash." Library usage is not kind to pop-up books, and we usually don't even bother adding them to the system.

That doesn't mean we don't LIKE pop-up books, though! One of our favorites at home is a pop-up, interactive version of Going on a Bear Hunt that Great-Grandma sent. That one is kept out of reach of my youngest son, for very obvious reasons. This one is a bit sturdier, though, and since we won't be adding it at the library, I think I will keep it and let him enjoy it. (Hear that, IRS? I am keeping a $13.99 review copy. Knock yourself out taxing me on that.)

We reviewed Shoes for Me, an earlier Sue Fliess book, a year ago, and have since purchased "A Dress for Me" for the library. This has the same fun, simple spirit and easy rhyme that make it a read-over-and-over choice. The pages, as I mentioned, are nice and sturdy, and offer a variety of motions for little fingers to practice (pull the tab out, spin the wheel, etc.) There's even a 'sticky' page where the tar truck has dumped its load (it's sticky right now, at any rate - I make no promises after it is introduced to my cat-and-dog-hair household).

If you have a boy...or a girl...of any age below 40...this one is well worth the purchase! It would make a great birthday gift, especially paired up with any type of toy cars and trucks. 'Scuse me, now, while I go spin the cement mixer some more.

My 3 1/2 year old son (and my 6 yr old daughter) both love this book...Another great rhyming book by Sue Fliess! The book is creative and fun to read. The kids love the interactive nature of the book - especially the sticky tar page and the street sweeper. One of their favorite parts is finding all of the cute animals on the last page and saying good night to them! A great read and sure to be a hit with kids ages 2-8 - boys and girls. Tons of Trucks For a really nice gift, add these too...A Dress for Me! Shoes for Me!

Format: Hardcover
Tons and Trucks is a terrific picture book that boys AND girls will love. The rhymes are simple making the book flow and beg to be read aloud. But that's not all. To take it to the next level, it is an interactive book as well with each truck performing some task....the scooper truck scoops, the army truck panels open, the fire truck extends and my personal fave, the tar truck has a SPLAT of tar!! It really does! Children will love turning the board pages to see what fun treat awaits. They are sturdy enough to withstand pudgy hands working the levers and opening the windows and the gloss finish will make smudges easy to wipe off.
I highly recommend this book and congratulate Sue and Betsy for their obvious hard work in making this not just a fun read, but a fun experience as well.

I got this book for my 1-year-old son but I can barely get it away from my 5-year-old daughter! Can't go wrong with lift-and-move books for all young kids ... and this one is unique - like the tar truck with sticky tar to touch. This author's other books are really catchy and fun to read ... we also have A Dress for Me and Shoes For Me, which is the first book my daughter memorized (of the stacks and stacks of books we have in the house!) I can barely start each page before she finishes my sentence!
