Description

Everyone's heard of a tow truck. And a pickup truck. An ice-cream truck? Of course! But what about a quint truck? A lowboy truck? A knuckle-boom truck? Readers will learn about these kinds of trucks—and many more—while learning the alphabet in ALPHABET TRUCKS. Each letter of the alphabet is accounted for in this introductory concept book for young readers. From the familiar to the unusual, Samantha Vamos writes in snappy verse to present twenty-six different kinds of trucks, explaining where they work and what they do. From a dump truck that unloads a pile of dirt containing the letter "D," to a fuel truck filling up at a tank shaped like the letter "F," Ryan O'Rourke's playful and light-hearted illustrations involve the letters in supporting roles in each scene. Perfect for the truck lover, ALPHABET TRUCKS provides a fun and accessible way for children to learn their ABCs.

        PreS-Gr 1-Hardworking trucks zoom across the pages of this vocabulary-rich concept book. Each spread features two trucks in a rhymed couplet that occasionally trips the tongue with clunky rhyme and meter, and while it will take practice to read the book aloud smoothly for storytime, this is not a major problem. From apple truck to ore truck to zipper truck, young vehicle enthusiasts will find something to excite them in this attractive abecedarian offering. There are some unusual trucks here, and that makes the book stand out from the everyday vehicle offering, as do O'Rourke's retro-feel oil and acryclic renditions. Each truck sports a letter in a lively font, and the pages feature multicultural men, women, and children. The pages are nicely designed, with plenty of space for the trucks and the letters to shine. A fun choice for letter recognition and vocabulary building.-Angela J. Reynolds, Annapolis Valley Regional Library, Bridgetown, NS, Canada

        Another new alphabet book--and focused on trucks? Yep. So put on your hard hats and get ready to roll with these 26 hardworking trucks featured in rhyming verse. Trucks are magnets for little boys, and this convoy will both delight and introduce them to unusual ones. The alphabetic lineup has some obvious ones, like D for dump truck and P for pickup truck, but most of the vehicles will be new to fans, and many have surprising jobs. C is for cargo, G is for grapple, K is for knuckle-boom, L is for lowboy, O is for ore, Q is for quint (a truck with hose, tank, ladders and pump), V is for vacuum and X is for X-ray truck. Oils and acrylics illustrate the rhymes with graphic simplicity, incorporating multiple letters into the scenes: I is for ice cream truck, and the cones are "I" shapes. The letters are paired two to a spread across the gutter, interacting with each other: The snowplow truck and tow truck form a snowy scene. Gear up, as this is bound to be a hit. From apple truck to zipper truck, "Day and night. / just watch and see. / Trucks work hard / from A to Z." Vroom, vroom! (Picture book. 3-6)
