Little Blue Truck

“Neigh!” said a horse.
“Quack!” said a duck.
“Beep!” said the friendly
Little Blue Truck.

Little Blue truck is driving along the country saying hello to all his animal friends. When suddenly a big mean Dump truck comes through pushing Little Blue truck and the other animals aside. But then the Dump truck gets stuck! Who will help him, not the animals who found Dump to be rude. But Little Blue truck will help, but then he gets stuck too. Luckily Little Blue has friends that work together and set both trucks free.

Charming short tale about kindness, friendship, and helping out others. The story is told in rhyme with beautiful cadence. I enjoyed reading this book aloud. Young readers will enjoy saying the different animal sounds. I recommend this book for young readers age 3-5.

Recommendation: Add to Home Library

  1. I just saw this one at Barnes and Noble last night, and my immediate first thought was that it would be perfect for story time. It also reminds me a little bit of the Mr. Gumpy books. Nice review!

  2. Thanks Katie! I have never heard of the Mr.Gumpy books, I’ll have to look it up.
