Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 3. A book about trucks is always welcome among younger readers and this one will be no exception. Eleven different trucks are described in 8-to-12 line narrative poems, written in first person so that each vehicle tells about itself. Each spread consists of a photograph on the left-hand page and two smaller photos and the poem on the right. The heavy black print makes a good contrast to the white background. The full-color photography is excellent. Colors are sharp and clear. The use of blurred backgrounds on the ambulance and fire truck is very effective. Though the vocabulary could be handled by a good second-grade reader, the topic, the bright colors, and the catchy beat of the rhymes will make the book popular with many preschoolers. Put this title on the shelf and watch it keep on truckin'.?Eldon Younce, Harper Elementary School,

From Booklist

Ages 2^-5. For all those preschoolers who love watching trucks on the highway and at work, Katz has collected brightly colored photographs of tow trucks, ambulances, garbage trucks, and more. Opposite the full-page picture of each truck are several smaller photos and a short poem, in which the truck talks about what it does. The rhymes are sometimes forced, but kids will love the bits of factual information as well as the game of imagining how the truck describes itself. In the best pieces the sound reinforces the sense: "See me gobble, grind, and mash, / while I dine on lovely trash." Hazel Rochman

My son, who is the real reviewer of this book, loves this book that he can recite almost all of them; of course, it helps that he loves trucks! The poems are fun and he loves to pretend he is a truck, too, with the help of this book!

This amusing book of poems is a delight to both parent and child. There are high-quality photos of various kinds of modern trucks, each with an accompanying rhyme. The poems are rythmic, humorous, and memorable...in fact, my 2 year-old bursts ito a recital whenever he sees a similar truck on the road!

My daughters love this book! they pick it everynight before bed. my 3 year old is learning to rhyme with it and my one year old is putting names to pictures. I love it too! The girls name trucks now when we are out on the road! I absolutely recommend this book to other parents.
