We received this book as a gift from my sister. It is absolutely adorable! The Little Blue truck is driving down a country road. As he beeps along, he encounters several barn animals. They all answer back with their respective animal noises. However, a big dump truck barrels through and has no regard for the Little Blue truck or the friendly animals. He gets stuck in the mud and all the animals ignore his pleas for help except the Little Blue truck. Finally, after Little Blue also gets stuck while helping the dump truck, all the animals come to help.
This is a fun little rhyming book that focuses on helping others even when they don't deserve it. Children learn animal names and sounds as the Little Blue Truck happily makes it's way through the countryside. This is a sweet book that you will enjoy over and over.
Shrade really likes the word "car" and when I read this book he loudly calls it a CAR, but I just as loudly repeat TRUCK. Maybe someday he will get it!
