Little Blue Truck
Today, I am posting about another one of my son's favorites, Little Blue Truck by Alice Schertle.
This is a well-written book both Joe and I love about a little blue truck traveling through farm country that comes across a big, self-important dump truck stuck in a mud puddle. Despite having been snubbed by said dump truck only moments earlier, the little blue truck decides to do the right thing and help the big truck out of the puddle. Encouraged by the little truck's example, the farm animals all join in and help the truck out. It is a pleasant little story about the importance of treating others well and what it means to be a good truck/person. Mommy likes it because of it's great folk art style drawings, and because the rhythm and rhymes with which it is written make is easy and enjoyable to read. Joe likes it because it is about trucks that say 'beep'.
