Food Trucks! by Jeffrey Burton - ADVISABLE

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
