Little Blue Truck is a family favorite, but this book is a disappointment
on June 17, 2015
My two-year old twins love the Little Blue Truck and since the first book was such a hit, I had to buy the second. The story isn't as good as the first book (most reviewers agree)... but the dialogue from the other vehicles in the story is just plain rude and nasty. I originally gave this book three stars, as my twins love the whole country truck goes to the big city plot.... but each time I read it, I dislike it more and more. I will not read it as is. I have changed the story and eliminated the nasty stuff, but you still see the nasty faces on the other vehicle characters in the illustrations. Just a major disappointment that this could be considered appropriate language and message for such young children.
