Tons of trucks before our eyes, in every color, shape, and size! Strong trucks, big trucks, scoop and dig trucks!
Thus begins Sue Fliess’ latest children’s book,Tons of Trucks. In this cute, rhyming board book, illustrator Betsy Snyder created bright, colorful pictures with adorable animals as drivers. Tons of Trucks is a fun interactive book for toddlers. Kids can push, pull, and turn to make the trucks mix, sweep, or open. I like how Fleiss created a book that doesn’t have your usual array of trucks. There are street sweepers, moving trucks, tar trucks (complete with “sticky tar”) and army crew trucks. Toddlers will delight in this fun, and engaging look at trucks.
Disclosure: I received a copy of the book for review from the publisher.
