Little Blue Truck

Little Blue Truck

by Alice Schertle Illustrated by Jill McElmurry

Beep! Beep! Beep!

Meet Blue. A muddy country road is no match for this little pick-up — that is, until he gets stuck while pushing a dump truck out of the muck. Luckily, Blue has made a pack of farm animal friends along his route. And they're willing to whatever it takes to get their pal back on the road.

Filled with truck sounds and animals noises, here is a rollicking homage to the power of friendship and the rewards of helping others.
