Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 3-Hubbell's verse starts readers down a road that is sure to become a favorite route. "Old trucks. New trucks. Going-to-the-zoo trucks. Red trucks. Blue trucks. Bringing-toys-to-you trucks.- Trucks that RUMBLE, ROAR and shriek." These vehicles whiz and zoom through country and city, as varying fonts enhance the sounds with visual clues. And what a visual trip it is. Even the fastest truckers will slow down to enjoy the scenery and many creative detours. Halsey has combined old picture-dictionary images, clip art, etchings, original drawings, and road maps, and her vivid spreads will have readers rubbernecking for a better view. The collages are uncluttered, yet filled with details on every page. Perfectly matched to the text, the artwork adds subtle humor along the way. Especially clever are the truck drivers. The "heavy truck" is loaded with peanuts and driven by an elephant. Readers will immediately appreciate the stork steering the delivery truck filled with babies, and the black-and-white zebra behind the wheel of the WZEB News van. Even the author and artist make an appearance, trucking down this busy highway. Children will turn this book every which way searching for familiar roads and towns on the many background maps, and they'll want to retrace the rhythmic and scenic route again and again. It's a great trip!-Carolyn Janssen, Children's Learning Center of the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, OH

From Booklist

PreS-Gr. 1. Hubbell introduces young listeners to a wide variety of trucks, using succinct, cleverly written rhymed text. Children meet "old trucks. New trucks. Going-to-the-zoo trucks. Red trucks. Blue trucks. Bringing-toys-to-you trucks." Halsey's colorful collage artwork uses a combination of road maps, images cut from old picture dictionaries, clip art, and original drawings to enliven the words. She creates spreads that will dazzle the eye and amuse children able to catch her subtle humor: a stork, who advertises day or night deliveries, drives a truck filled with babies; an elephant operates a flatbed overflowing with boxes of peanuts; and a lightning bug drives an electrician's vehicle. Halsey also varies the perspective of her spreads; most move from left to right, but some require turning the book sideways, and one circles around the page. Only one small glitch: the penguin driving the snowplow should rename his company the Antarctic (not Arctic) Plow Co. A first pick for story hours; just make sure kids have plenty of time to peruse the details after the telling is done. Kay Weisman

Format: Hardcover
We got this book out of the library and it's such a big hit I had to buy one not only for my kids but also for my sister's two boys. My 2 and 4 year old son and daughter LOVE this book. I can hardly read it because on each page they take so long looking at the pictures and laughing at the truck drivers. Their favorites are the snowman driving the ice cream truck and the ghost driving the pumpkin truck. Whenever I can actually get through a page of text without being interrupted by many comments on the pictures, they enjoy the rhyming text. I highly recommend this book.

This is a great truck book for those who can't get enough trucks. It contains a rhyming enumeration of a huge number of trucks that you might see on the road. The pictures are quite detailed, and show some rather interesting drivers. This book is not at all scary- -it makes a great bedtime book. It has about 250 words.

We bought this after checking out the hardcover/board book from the library and my son loving it. It really loses something in the digital version, the screen keeps changing orientation. Not a fan. Not worth saving a couple dollars, buy the board book and love it - it's worth it.

My little boy LOVES this book and I don't mind reading it over and over. He's not quite 2, but he loves the rhymes and the artwork. My 3 & 5 year old daughters love it as well, so I think he'll enjoy it for quite a few years.

My grandson loves trucks. With trucks being one of his first words we have been able to search the highways for the various types of "BIG" trucks. Not only did the illustrator include a large array of trucks but she also included a variety of unique drivers. This book is entertaining for youngsters 1-4 years old.

This book (and all the other books in the series from the same author) because of rhymes is good for learning English as second language. My son at 3 years (his main language is Polish) picks up on the rhythm of the rhymes. We like Patricia Hubbell's BOATS and AIRPLANES books even more than TRUCK and TRAIN books. From the BOATS book my son learned directions...boats go North, South, East , West ...the theme repeats in all the books. In BOATS and AIRPLANES illustrations are more surprising and lighter color scheme than in later two books. We read these books over and over and both I and my son never get bored reading them.

We borrowed this book and I Like Cats by P. Hubbell from our library. My children, 5 and 2, loved both. They loved them so much that I checked them out a second time. Finally I just ordered them. Now over a year latter they both still love these books. We have a lot of books but this book and the cat one are chosen for night time books about once a week. The writting is so fun and poetic.

We took this out of the library many times before I finally bought my three-year old son his own copy. The illustrations are really charming, and the text is so fun to read. He studies the pictures and enjoys the rhymes each time we read it. Truly a new classic! A must for everyone who not only likes trucks, but loves to look at detailed, perfect illustrations!
