Lee, Mark 20 Big Trucks in the Middle of the Street Illustrated by Kurt Cyrus Candlewick Press, 2013. $7.99 BOARD BOOK Content: G.
A little boy on his bicycle watches as a traffic jam forms behind a broken down ice cream truck. As each new truck gets stuck behind the first, he begins to count them until there are twenty trucks in the road. In the end the little boy suggests that the crane pick up the ice cream truck so everyone can pass on through and it works.
This is an adorable board book with lots of fun trucks and simple texts that little readers can follow. The illustrations are clear and bright and it’s fun to count as the trucks add up, as well as to count them all when they are jammed around the block. This will be a big hit for little readers who love trucks.
