Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
Meet Axel, the bright red truck with monster-sized tires. Varoom, he is going out of town to a wide opened area where there are roads that he likes to bump, zoom, and climb. During his adventure, Axel catches a rock that is tumbling down the mountain and he brings it to the dump. After the story, enter the pages of Axel's garage where truck body parts and tools are labeled in a diagram. This story is part of the "I Can Read!" series of titles that focus on books to share with emergent readers. Along with the colorful pictures on every page, young children may enjoy the onomatopoeia and chime in during a read aloud experience. Some early readers may encounter some challenges with the vocabulary; however, their interest in reading about Axel the truck along with guidance may help to keep the early readers encouraged. There are other books about Axel the Truck for those children who want to continue with his adventures. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung

PreS-Gr 1—Axel, a monster truck, takes center stage in this beginning reader. There are plenty of vrooms, zooms, bumps, and bangs as he ploughs through town, flies off mountain trails, collects rocks sailing through the air and delivers them to a dump, and fills up with gas before returning home. Cheerful cartoons capture the action throughout. Similar in spirit to "Jon Scieszka's Trucktown" series (S & S), these books will appeal to the same readership-newly independent readers who can't get enough of humanlike vehicles out for adventure. As an added bonus, back matter features an ample array of labeled truck parts and garage tools.—Gloria Koster, West School, New Canaan, CT
