Tons of Trucks by Sue Fliess

Tons of Trucks by Sue Fliess
Illustrated by Betsy Snyder
Genre: Children’s Lift-the-Flap Book – Transportation
Pages: 18 Board Book
Date Published: July 3rd, 2012
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt

Big trucks, small trucks, dump trucks, tow trucks, and all kinds of other trucks can be found in this playful touch-and-move book. A backhoe scoops and digs, a cement truck spins, a tar truck oozes sticky tar, and tabs pull up and out to reveal surprises. The trucks eventually slow down for a rest, where little hands can lift the flaps to see animals snuggling up for sleepy-time—under a rising moon. Filled with vibrant art and adorable characters, this book gives a child everything he’s looking for when he presses his face against the fence at a construction site!

This is a fun lift-the-flap, pull-the-lever, turn this or that book full of a variety of trucks. Great for lovers of trucks or even a preschool transportation unit study. My almost preschooler loves it. A good read for anytime to discover more, but also with a certain line this can even be a new favorite bedtime story. Definitely a good gift idea.
