If you know a child who loves to stop and watch trucks when they drive by, you absolutely need to get them a copy of Tons of Trucks (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2012), a new picture book by Sue Fliess and Betsy Snyder.
This sturdy book lets small truck enthusiasts learn about different types of trucks and see what the do. Then, they can pull and lift the tabs and flaps to see the trucks in action. It holds up well to repeated readings and has a catchy, rhyming text.
Today’s reviewer, Aidan, is definitely the target market for this book, and he and his dad had a lot of fun reading the book together.
Take it away, Aidan!
Today’s reviewer: Aidan
I like: Fire trucks. Monster trucks. Mixer trucks and trains. Cheese. Playing at parks. And, I like doggies, too.
This book was about: Trucks and animals.
The best part was when: Pulling the monster truck up and then seeing the party on the back of the fire truck.
I laughed when: I saw the party on the back of the fire truck.
I was worried when: There’s nothing to worry about. But, why is there a motorbike on the car transporter. That’s silly.
This book taught me: Tar is sticky.
Other kids reading this book should watch for: All the pully, spinny, up-and-down things.
Three words that best describe this book: “Trucks.” “Pulling.” “Fun.”
My favorite line or phrase in this book is: “Honk! Go fast trucks.”
You should read this book because: You can read it and play it, too!
And, if you have a favorite truck story, share it in the comments.
