Little Blue Truck Leads the Way

PreS-Gr 1—When the carefree little blue truck heads into the city, he's bombarded with sights and sounds. A double-decker bus, grocery truck, police car, street sweeper, limousine, and taxi all jockey to get around the pokey truck. The wise truck suggests "one at a time," which becomes the mayor's advice, too, when his limo breaks down and the little blue truck offers him a lift. The rhyming anthropomorphic vehicles will be attention grabbers for energetic audiences.
VERDICT Pair this audio version (two tracks, one with page-turn signals) with the print and find youngsters who enjoy the multisensory experiences the combination can offer.
