Perfect for the lover of all things that go, ALPHABET TRUCKS provides a fun and accessible way for the littlest of readers to learn their trucks and their ABCs.
Each letter of the alphabet is accounted for in this introductory concept book for young readers. From the familiar to the unusual, Samantha Vamos writes in snappy verse to present twenty-six different kinds of trucks, explaining where they work and what they do. From a dump truck that unloads a pile of dirt containing the letter "D," to a fuel truck filling up at a tank shaped like the letter "F," Ryan O’Rourke’s playful and light-hearted illustrations involve the letters in supporting roles in each scene.
