    Joe keep on truckin'

    When our son, loved trucks, was three we bought him Big Joe's Trailer Truck. We almost read the print off the pages. He loved the simple and direct story and the great illustrations. He even came to call all trucks 'Big Joes'. Since then I have given copies of this delightful little book to several little boys with whom it has been an enormous hit. It's a must for little boys who love trucks.

    So Good I Am Now Buying It For My Grandson!

    I read this book to my 2-year old so often that I ended up memorizing it. _Big Joe's Trailer Truck_ does not talk down to your little child, but is not over her head either. It gave us lots to talk about in the car, and I learned something about 18-wheelers. Now I am buying it for HIS son!

    Prepare to enjoy!!!

    My husband bought this book for our 2yr. old grandson, who loves trucks, and boy was it a hit. It is one of the first things that he goes and gets when he comes to visit. He starts 'Read Big Joe, Read Big Joe', and we have all read it to him many, many times. If fact he knows the story as well as we do.

    Outstanding book!

    This was my favorite when I was a little kid. I must have read it 1000 times. The illustrations had detail that I couldn't get enough of. Plus, it's all about big trucks. What kid doesn't like those? Highly recommended!

    My Favorite Childhood Book!

    I loved this book, not so much for the story, but for the illustrations. I would stare endlessly at the garage and diner scenes looking at the expressions on people's faces and the intricacies of Joe's truck. It was a great book to get lost in because I could see the illustrations in real life - driving with my parents in traffic, going with my Dad to the mechanics, and imagining that Joe was bringing his haul to my local toy store. I was so happy to find that this book is still available... please share it with your children.
