Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

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.

From School Library Journal

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.

Format: Board book
My two year old absolutely loves this book. It is a great introduction to trucks and the pictures help to identify trucks when we are on the road. I really like that the book "classifies" some trucks, i.e. "this one digs"; "this one dumps". That really helps the youngest readers to understand. I also like that the books includes the greatest truck of all: the ice cream truck. My little one has memorized this book and "reads" it all by himself. It is also the perfect length for parents when a little one is demanding "one more time". I am so glad that I received this book as a gift for my little boy.

My 18 month old absolutely adores this book. He is fascinated with "real-life" trucks and this book explains in a very easy manner all the different types of trucks he sees everyday--mommys and daddys may even learn something! The narrative is short and sweet which is a must with this age group. And the pictures are fun and colorful. Definitely recommended reading for any little truck lover out there.

We discovered this book at the library & took it out so much, we ended up buying our own board book version. It's very loved. Last night my 3 year old son woke up at 4am calling for his "truck book!" And he slept with his arms around it. The illustrations are so simple and clear, and the rhyming is very catchy. I do have to admit that while we like the other books by this pair (Trains, School, etc), this is the best & the favorite in our house.

This is a great little book for any kid who loves trucks like my 14 month old son does. It shows several different types of trucks, tow trucks, bulldozers, concrete mixers, etc. lIt doesn't give the proper name to most of them so if that's what you're looking for, look else where. It's more a description of what each type of truck does. My kid enjoys it non the less and asks to read it several times a day. The reason it's four stars is there's one page that you have to flip the book to read upright and while I don't mind this, my toddler doesn't seem to like it. But my biggest gripe is that the last truck described, which is the kid in the book's favorite truck, is an ice cream truck. I just wish these authors of kids books wouldn't put such a positive emphasis on junk food. Not such a big deal that I'll stop reading it to him...just more of an annoyance.

Sturges and Halpern have done it again! My 15-month-old boy first got a hold of this book in the library and he loved it. He loved the pictures, particularly the one with fire-engine (do all boys love fire-engines?) Then I ended up buying a copy.

It's also fun to read along with your kid - yes, he can read! This is what my wife and I did: we read "trucks that sweep the?" and then our boy will say "street"!!! The simple words that the author chose have definitely made it easy for my boy to memorize.

By the way, I also bought I love Trains and I love Planes by the same authors. They are just as great. I strongly recommend them.

My 3-year-old grandson loves the book, I Love Trucks. He regularly asks to one of us to read this book to him. Actually, this is his second book. The first book was "dog-earred" and badly damaged with spilt milk. The book has bright colors, good illustrations and not too many words to keep a 3 year old focused on each page. It is also not bad for adults to read over and over again.

This was our son's favorite book for his first 2 years. The board book is durable and holds up to a tough baby boy. At first he loved the bright, bold colors. But the poetry, rhyme, and diverse trucks have kept it as a favorite read.

Perfect book in size for small hands, and vivid colors for inquisitive eyes. Any little tyke who enjoys trucks will love this book. My grandson is one of these tykes.
