Overview

Big Rig by Jamie A. Swenson, Ned Young

Come along for the ride as Frankie the big rig truck takes us on the job, driving past kiddie cars (school buses) and land yachts (RVs). Hear the horn blow and the wipers schwat the windshield clean. But, BANG! SHHUUU! Uh-oh: a blow-out! Don't worry, a service truck saves the day so we can get the job done and make a very special delivery.

Every kid will love to learn the truck driver lingo in the story, and shout out their own sound effects as they return for another ride, read after read. Author Jamie Swenson takes readers from zero to sixty with her fast-talking truck and Ned Young's bright and engaging illustrations.

The book description calls this book for ages 3 to 5 and I fully agree. A beginning reader to an intermediate reader could handle this book. Thinking of my 6 year old who loves to read, he would definitely still read it although I know it would be easy for him. The words are big and there aren’t a ton of words to the page. The illustrations are super cute and would definitely capture the eye of younger children. The book is cute and gives an ‘inside’ look into the big rig trucks you pass on the road and lets the kids know what the big rigs do and where they may be going. I definitely recommend for the younger kids (great for a preschool or kindergarten classroom too!)

I bought this for my nephew. It is so much fun to read - and the art is really retro and fun too. Plus, there are dinosaurs - everything my nephew loves. There's a trucktionary at the end to explain the truck words - like 'back off the hammer' and 'keep the shiny side up and the rubber side down.' Fun book.
