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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous interactive "truck" book Tons of Trucks - book review This is a beautiful and durable book. It is a wonderful interactive, hands-on book that will surely delight your pre-schooler! The author and illustrator have outdone themselves with excellent illustrations that move, can be pulled, lifted, opened up, swirled and actually touched to make an enjoyable reading "experience" for your children. The text is expounded in simple rhymes which you know is a hit with kids of all ages! Your child will be excited to discover all the surprises that are woven into the book. There is actually a truck that delivers tar and your child can touch and feel how sticky tar can really be. Pure genius! The illustrations are playful, colourful and reminiscent of Richard Scarry's work. The text and the illustrations make a perfect marriage. The book is gender friendly and I know your kids will go back again and again for a re-read.
