From School Library Journal
PreSchool-Grade 3—This collection of lively truck-themed “Mother Goose” rhymes is filled with humor, although not all of them are equally nimble for reading aloud. Replacing the familiar lines for “Little Miss Muffet” are the words: “Little Dan Dumper sat on his bumper,/Taking his break for the day./Along came Pete Loader,/who revved his loud motor,/And frightened Dan Dumper away.” The words for “Three Blind Mice” change to: “Three LOUD trucks./Three LOUD trucks./See how they ZOOM./See how they ZOOM./They all jumped over/the muck and goo./They skidded and screeched/and their mufflers blew./Did you ever see/such a crazy crew?/As three LOUD trucks./Three LOUD trucks.” Fresh noisy lyrics for “The Wheels on the Bus” are great for singing exuberantly in storytime, “The siren on the truck goes whoop, whoop, whoop….” The digital illustrations are colorful, energetic, and playful: the vehicles have personality plus. One flashy spread shows all of them and their sound words from “The Wheels on the Truck,” and another picture shows the ice-cream truck parked on a moon made of ice cream. This effervescent picture book will zoom off your shelves.—Kirsten Cutler, Sonoma County Library, CA
