Be warned, the binding on this book *will* peel off. Have some tape to fix the problem. I took off a star over that.Onto the book itself:My little truck-obsessed niece (aged 2.5) adores this book. We follow a truck's day, and he tells us all about his various friends on the road and the jobs they do. The narration is similar in style to the "I Stink" series of books, but gentler - if you were turned off of those books because of the main character's attitude, you might prefer this one.I do find that the story here is a little choppy. Your little one probably won't notice.So long as you have masking tape at home for that pesky binding problem, I highly recommend this one.
The text was rather long, but engaging. It managed to keep his attention all the way through, although that might have been because I sounded like I was starring in a bad spaghetti western when I read it. Usually, books written in dialect are right up there with children's stories written in a forced rhyme on my list of things I don't like to read out loud, but Dennis Shealy did a pretty good job keeping the dialect light and funny. The artwork, of course, was perfect. It was perfectly beautiful. It was perfectly colorful. It was perfectly elegant. And it was perfectly humorous. And it was (almost) enough to forgive this book for recalling my high school drama days.
This is a wonderful little gem. Beautiful, bold illustrations and great, expressive writing. My son comes back to this book time after time. As a parent, it's a fun one to read aloud.
This book was absolutely worth the purchase. It was fun to read and had me in stitches while reading to the grandson.Very fun story line and a must for young pre-schoolers. Great book. MIMI58MS
