I think I say this about every book that I review or I read to my kids but I really and truly do think that Little Blue Truck is the cutest book ever. The advice of literary advisors and pediatricians is to read to your child as often as possible and on a daily basis. If you want to find a book that you won’t get sick of reading over and over to your baby/child, this is the one that you need to add to your collection. I could recite this book from memory right now. “Little Blue Truck went down the road. Beep! said Blue to the big green toad!” It’s just so adorable with the onomatopoeias, the colorful illustrations and the adventure of this little blue truck and his animal friends.
As Little Blue Truck takes a ride through the countryside, he meets several animals and says hello as he passes by. But he encounters a big grumpy dump truck who, “Doesn’t have time to pass the day with every duck along the way!” But soon after that grumpy remark, the Dump’s “big important wheels got stuck”. It is the help of the Little Blue Truck and all of his new animal friends that free the dump and help him to see that friendship is important. “Now I see a lot depends on the helping hand of a few good friends”.
