Big trucks kids book This book is a great sensory tool since it includes several textures, such as grainy rough sand, squishy foam, and mirrored foil. The story is about several trucks who work together on a build and it promotes sharing, working with others and being kind. The pages are a thick cardboard material which perfect for little ones as they can be rough on books at times. Each page has a few words to a few sentences making it a perfect short bedtime story or easy enough for school aged kids to read on there own. The text rhymes which also makes it fun for the kids and easier to remember, it is listed as being a Fiction/ religious genre book. Its bright and colorful too, which attracts kids and keeps there attention. I received this product for free for review purposes, all thoughts and or opinions are my own and unbiased.

“It’s time for trucks to leave the site. ‘We did our best. We did it right. God bless … Good night to each of you,’” states the ending of Tommy Nelson children’s book, Big Trucks: Getting the Job Done Together. ~ What ~ At twelve pages, this square paperback with rounded corners targets children ages four to eight years old who are fascinated with trucks. With no scary scenes, it is a story told in rhyme about several types of construction trucks and how they work together to get the job done. Including some complicated wording, it would be best read out loud to beginner readers. Containing “touch and feel” sections on several pages, the rhymed tale explains how trucks named Dozer, Diggit, Tipper, and Stretch use their robust and powerful know-how to shove, dig, lift, and dump as they work together to finish a task. ~Why ~ This is a nice tale about working together, conveyed through several trucks. I like that children can touch the rubberized wheels, sand, mirrored windows, shiny axil and building beams, and rough payment. Mentioning God briefly is a thoughtful touch. ~ Why Not ~ Those who have no relationship with Jesus may not approve of the one time God is mentioned. New readers may find the two- and three-syllable words hard to pronounce. ~ Wish ~ While I appreciate the different construction trucks shown, I wish there were more of them such as cement trucks, gas trucks, firetrucks, and utility trucks to name a few. ~ Want ~ If you are looking for a book for young ones about trucks as team players, this may be a good choice, but I wish it were more comprehensive. Thanks to BookLookBloggers for this complimentary book that I am under no obligation to review.

BIG TRUCKS: GETTING THE JOB DONE TOGETHER is a cute read for toddlers and preschoolers that will encourage discovery. Each page has a shiny or different feeling area for your favorite small child to discover. An engaging storyline about working together and sharing the work load will help to teach your child to help and the engaging rhyme will keep them interested. I was given a copy free. All opinions are my own.
