Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
The friendship of three trucks is told in this early reader. Each truck takes to the road, going up and down the hills outside of the city. Then, the rain arrives. Unfortunately, Dump Truck gets stuck in the mud and cannot get out of the mud mess. Luckily, his friends Green Truck and Blue Truck come to the rescue. The brightly colored illustrations personify the trucks, with the headlights or windshields drawn as eyes. The simple, clear pictures support the text. The text includes some patterned sentences and high frequency words. The text is one to three lines per page, and these are located consistently at the lower left page of the layout. The plot of the story is simple. There is a white rabbit pictured throughout the story; the rabbit seems to be telling the story about the trucks from his perspective. A note at the beginning of the book provides some helpful tips for parents and caregivers who are supporting early readers. For more stories about the truck pals, there are a few more books available in the "Stone Arch Reader" series. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung
