Trucks are BIG in this household. Trains are big too – but there are so many DIFFERENT kinds of trucks that they slowly seem to be taking over! We have some fantastic truck books that I wanted to share with you.
Little Blue Truck by Alice Schertle
This cute and fun story is about a Little Blue Truck that helps a big dump truck. There is another book in the series: Little Blue Truck Leads the Way which we also like.
Tough Trucks by Tony Mitton and Ant Parker
This book is part of the excellent Amazing Machines series, and is a wonderful mix of fun, rhyme and information.
Cars and Trucks from A to Z by Richard Scarry
This is a whacky little book featuring real and imaginary cars and trucks. Let’s just say that the first four pages run like this: “Ambulance, apple car, bananamobile, bugdozer, corn car, crayon car, delivery van, dump truck…”
Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site by Sherri Duskey Rinker
This popular book is a lovely gentle read. It features the vehicles on a construction site all finishing work for the day and going to sleep.
I am a Backhoe by Anna Grossnickle Hines
This book can be hard to get hold of – but buy it if you find a copy! A little boy pretends to be different construction site vehicles, including riding on his Daddy’s back as if it was a flatbed truck.
My Big Truck Book by Roger Priddy
This book features bright bold photos and is a wonderful visual guide to trucks.
My Truck is Stuck! by Kevin Lewis and Daniel Kirk
A fun story about two dogs driving a dump truck that gets stuck, and the people they ask to help them. Good rhymes and fun illustrations.
