Schertle, Alice Little Blue Truck Beep-Along Book, illustrated by Jill McElmurry. PICTURE BOOK. Houghton Mifflin, 2015. $13. Content: G.
Schertle has adapted “If You’re Happy and You Know It” into a story for the Little Blue Truck friends sing and beep. The book has a cut out pages with a fuzzy Little Blue Truck that they can beep along with the song. It is a cute novelty book that parents will get tired of reading and beeping quickly and if I were a little kid I would want to rip the fuzzy Blue off the book so that I could play with him without the book. So cute idea, but a couple of execution problems.
