Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 3—This collection of lively truck-themed "Mother Goose" rhymes is filled with humor, although not all of them are equally nimble for reading aloud. Replacing the familiar lines for "Little Miss Muffet" are the words: "Little Dan Dumper sat on his bumper,/Taking his break for the day./Along came Pete Loader,/who revved his loud motor,/And frightened Dan Dumper away." The words for "Three Blind Mice" change to: "Three LOUD trucks./Three LOUD trucks./See how they ZOOM./See how they ZOOM./They all jumped over/the muck and goo./They skidded and screeched/and their mufflers blew./Did you ever see/such a crazy crew?/As three LOUD trucks./Three LOUD trucks." Fresh noisy lyrics for "The Wheels on the Bus" are great for singing exuberantly in storytime, "The siren on the truck goes whoop, whoop, whoop…." The digital illustrations are colorful, energetic, and playful: the vehicles have personality plus. One flashy spread shows all of them and their sound words from "The Wheels on the Truck," and another picture shows the ice-cream truck parked on a moon made of ice cream. This effervescent picture book will zoom off your shelves.—Kirsten Cutler, Sonoma County Library, CA

We borrowed this book from the library and plan on buying it for our boys for Christmas! Our sons love this book and we read it about 10-15 times a day, no exaggeration! Actually, my 1.5 year old is trying to get me to read it right now. In this book, the Trucktown crew has changed the words to nursery rhymes and songs to fit Trucktown characters and it is wonderful! I catch our 3 year old singing the new versions all the time! This is a good investment for any parents with young boys.

I bought this book because my two-year-old little boy loves trucks. So I figured I'd give the book a shot since all the rhymes are truck-themed. The rhymes themselves are based off of traditional nursery rhymes like "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" or "Three Blind Mice" for example. It turns out he loves the book and will gladly let me read it to him from cover to cover. He really enjoys all the different types of trucks in it. It's nice too because I have learned some of the ryhmes from reading it numerous times and can recite them during boring tasks such as hand-washing or diaper-changing to keep him more engaged. I'm very happy with this book.

I have three grandsons, ages 2,4 and 5 who are, of course, into trucks. That this book, including it's illustrations, is a delight came as no surprise to this retired teacher who has admired Scieszka's work for many years.

I bought the first one at a going-out-of business-sale at Borders so I had a chance to really read it. Then I came home and ordered another one for the other family from Amazon.

My son loves trucks. I thought this spin on the classic nursery rhymes would be fun to read. The writing iteself is cute, but the illustrations are confusing. Often the pages are too busy to determine what's going on or the trucks are shrouded in decorations making them difficlut to identify.

We first received this book as a gift for my son when he was 2, and he loved it! Since then, we have purchased several copies as baby shower gifts for friends. My son is now 7 and still remembers the words to the rhymes.

We LOVE this book, it is funny, cute, gets us singing. It has every common rhyme or song that you would sing with your kids. Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star; Humpty Dumpty; Little Miss Muffet; Wheels on the Bus; but each song has the words changed to be about the Trucktown trucks. It is great!

This is one of my favorite books to give as a baby gift. I am a children's librarian and the kids love to echo read this book. Great opportunity to compare traditional nursery rhymes and Truckery Rhymes!

My family gives this book eight enthusiastic thumbs up! I enjoy singing the truck-themed rhymes to my 3 year old daughter who bursts into fits of giggles every time we read it! Creative writing, cute artwork, large font for my poor old eyes, a great addition to any kid's book stash.
