Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1—Trucks of all different sizes and colors roll along roadways carrying realistic and imaginary cargo. Four-line rhyming verses describe the vehicles, their loads, and the stops they make: "Trucks have trailers./Trucks have cabs./Some haul rabbits./Some haul labs" (the illustration shows Labrador Retrievers). The narrative occasionally diverts from the rhythmic pattern of the shorter, snappier rhymes: "Haul them through mountains,/over rivers, past towns—/around blue sky curves,/through rain pouring down." The trucks transport apples, giant chocolate-chip cookies, bulldozers, large puzzle pieces, and more. The side of one semi reads "Bookmobile." Frazier's hand- and digitally colored artwork pairs well with the text. His use of bold colors and varied perspectives enhance the illustrations. The orange endpapers look like a metal running board, reflecting the book's theme. Kids who love trucks will be attracted to the cover and have fun exploring the pages inside.—Lynn K.

From Booklist

Can there ever be enough truck books? With a simple playful rhyme and big, bright pictures of powerful vehicles close up, this one is sure to be in demand. The word is BIG, not only for the vehicles but also for their trailers and wheels and other parts; for all the different loads they carry, from spaceships to toys: "Trucks bring ice cream. / Trucks bring blocks, / books and bulldozers, dolls and clocks." Then there are the vast distances they travel, with immense power, through mountains, over rivers, past towns. Look closely; the gas pumps look almost human, the truck wheels like smiling faces. After many read-alouds, lap-sit listeners will still want to point at the pictures and play. Hazel Rochman

When I went to the library with my 2 y/o son, this was the first book he found and he would not let it go. When we got home I read it for him and he loved it. After about 3 days, he had memorized the entire book. And could flip through the pages and say exactly what was on the page. I couldn't return it back to the libary without him crying. So I ended up having to check it out about 3 more times after that. So needless to say this book is great for little boys.

This book has great pictures and a fun story line. We bought this when my son was about 18 months (after he accidently ripped a page from a library book and we traded it in), and he really liked it for many years (he is now almost 8!).

My little girl loves this book, and her mama does too. It reads well, and if you are a parent who loves the open road, riding the rails, truck stops, honkey tonk, and that type of thing you might like the book too. We've had it out of the library for four months and its still a fave.

My two-year-old son loves this book, we've read it twice daily for the last week. It has some unique pictures and vocabulary, so he has been able to learn several new words, "piston", trailer, cab, which he uses proudly.

I watch my 2 1/2 year old grandson 4 days a week. He loves trucks and points them out to us whenever we are taking a walk or out for a drive.

We encourage reading and have many books readily available so that we can read to him or he can read on his own. Our daily routine includes reading 2 or 3 books before going for his nap.

Trucks Roll is one of his (and mine) favorite books!

The book is written in short, melodic sentences that little children just love. It is a very colorful and fun book.

I highly recommend this book.

We originally checked it out from the library and that night my 2 year old son wanted to read Trucks Roll again and we didn't have it....NOT a good thing.

This book is now a part of our home library and it is still the book he chooses every night. He loves the pictures and of course announcing over and over with me "Trucks ROLL!"

I like the clever rhyme scheme that the author employs in his text, but the visuals are very linear and look like they were all drawn on a computer. A silly, fun book to read, I don't think it is a must have for a home library unless you have lots of disposable income.
