Book Review: Trucks

Rating: ★★★☆☆

This is a straightforward educational board book presenting different types of trucks and their activities, rendered in chunky concept-drawings, with minimal text.  Most little boys go through a stage of being fascinated with trucks, and this was one of the first books I have used to introduce the different functions and shapes that trucks can take.  Kids will outgrow it quickly, though, since it lacks detail for them to grow into; if you can only get one book about vehicles, get Richard Scarry’s Cars and Trucks and Things that Go.  But if you’re looking for a fresh temporary read for your truck-fascinated toddler, do pick this up at the library.
