Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Young Joshua James does indeed love trucks and, he seems to have quite a collection. They range from big to little, long and short and come in a variety of colors. There is a red fire engine, yellow dump truck, and a blue van. He plays in the sand by an old tree and keeps pulling more trucks out of a carton that does not look like it could hold all that are on display. He has fun pushing a truck up a hill and a full loader down the hill. Joshua is surrounded by his trucks and circles them in a scene that reminds one of an old western where the covered wagons end up a circle for protection. The blurb at the end of the story introduces the author and illustrator and this is followed by several activities to reinforce the lesson in classification, comparisons, and vocabulary—a sing-along to a familiar tune, comparing and classifying, identifying the parts of a fire truck, games to increase vocabulary skills by describing likes and dislikes, and naming numbers. There is an index that lists the nineteen words that make up the story which for this reviewer is pretty amazing because it was not boring and did not feel unduly repetitive. Part of the "Rookie Ready to Learn-Out and About: In My Community" series. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
