Reynolds, Luke If My Love Were a Fire Truck : A Daddy’s Love Song, illustrated by Jeff Mack. PICTURE BOOK. Doubleday (Random House), 2017. $16.99. Content: G.
A little boy’s dad tells how much he loves by comparing his love to fun things the boy likes: a fire truck, a rocket ship, a lion, a marching band, fireworks etc.
Told from the daddy’s perspective as he puts his son to bed, the writing is simple and rhyming, encouraging the child to read along. Large colorful illustrations of the boy and his dad, happily experiencing the events make this a great bedtime story that I'm sure could easily become a favorite.
