Burton, Jeffrey Food Trucks! Illustrated by Jay Cooper. BOARD BOOK. Little Simon, Simon & Schuster, 2016. $7.99. Content: G.
This informational lift-the-flap board book is about mobile food trucks. It gives children an inside view of the trucks and uses facing-page rhymes to talk about the different types of cuisine (and several examples of each) that are commonly found on food trucks. Each page also features a greeting word in the major language of each cuisine’s culture.
Given the popularity of food trucks in our community, I think it would be a good addition to a pre-school or early elementary library. The board format of the book may inhibit damage to the pages from children opening the flaps.
PRE-K – ADVISABLE. Reviewer: JA, High School Librarian
