PreS-Gr 3A book about trucks is always welcome among younger readers and this one will be no exception. Eleven different trucks are described in 8-to-12 line narrative poems, written in first person so that each vehicle tells about itself. Each spread consists of a photograph on the left-hand page and two smaller photos and the poem on the right. The heavy black print makes a good contrast to the white background. The full-color photography is excellent. Colors are sharp and clear. The use of blurred backgrounds on the ambulance and fire truck is very effective. Though the vocabulary could be handled by a good second-grade reader, the topic, the bright colors, and the catchy beat of the rhymes will make the book popular with many preschoolers. Put this title on the shelf and watch it keep on truckin'.Eldon Younce, Harper Elementary School, KS
