Twenty Big Trucks in the Middle of the Streetby Mark Lee
Count the trucks getting stuck in a traffic jam in this rhythmic read-aloud sure to draw in kids who love everything on wheels. If you’re a little boy on a bike, an ice-cream truck on your street is always a welcome sight. But what if the truck breaks down and blocks the mail truck behind it (now there are two), not to mention a third truck carrying hay? One by one, trucks of all types and sizes and functions are sure to pile up behind, offering ample opportunity for ogling — and counting. And maybe the boy’s idea for putting one of the trucks to good use might even save the day! Includes an audio read-along.

Our little guy is two and loves trucks. We have a houseful of books and read daily to him and his sister--but he insists on this one first at every sitting. He loves naming the trucks, seeing how the dilemma unfolds, and finding the little boy on each page (whom he's named for himself). Plus it's a great lesson in collaboration!
My two-year-old son loves trucks, so naturally loves this book. He asked me to read it to him again and again when he received it from St. Nick!
