I renewed this book from the library so often that I bought our own copy. The clincher was watching my 28-month old sit on the floor and turn each page, reciting all the lines. The reviews don't do justice to this charming story with fun illustrations.
We almost liked this book. The pictures are large and friendly and attractive, and there are alot of interesting things to point out and talk about; but unlike the children of the other reviewers, mine did not find this book engrossing.

I think the principle reason for this is the rhyme. We read alot of poetry (son and daughter, 3 and 5 respectively) and I think the not quite free-verse style of this author threw them off.

For example, at one point the rhyming words are ... bank/yank...

sack/back...(so far, okay)... and then truck/money. Hmmm.

I am going to try to overcome this by just leaving off the last two lines of every paragraph (the truck/money part) and see how it goes. Other than that it is a delightful book.

Just thought you'd like to know.

My now 10 year old son fell in love with this book from the library at age 2 so we also purchased it. I now have a 21 month old son who loves it just as much. A great book to have for your little one who loves to look for different trucks on the road.
