PreSchool-Grade 1–A preschooler wakes up excited, knowing that his trucker daddy will be picking him up from school in his tanker truck. Throughout the day, the boy's thoughts are on the impending time with his dad. Some of the illustrations depict the father's activities with childlike, crayonlike drawings, perhaps created by the young protagonist. Other illustrations with fuller, brighter hues follow his activities. Bouncy rhyming text accompanies the simple pictures. I'm waiting and waiting so
hard./I hum our favorite song./Humming through my sandwich,/'Daddy don't be long!' The man is stuck in traffic, but when he finally arrives, the boy is full of glee and runs into his arms. The trucker dad is depicted wearing blue jeans and a white T-shirt, and he sports a short ponytail, an earring, and tattoos. The happy twosome set off for the open road together. While not an essential purchase, the subject matter will appeal to the crowds of boys who can't get enough truck books.–DeAnn Okamura, San Mateo County Library, CA
