Trucks of different shapes and sizes share one important purpose in this classic picture book from the bestselling creator of Moonshot and Locomotive.
You have hurried
to be on time.
You look now
through a window
and see five trucks.
They are hurrying, too.
Where are they going?
for five trucks—
each has a job to do.
They hurry to be on time.
they see you!
Originally published in 1999 by DK, Five Trucks features a new cover and plenty of exciting machines!

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
My son loved this book from the very first time we read it (he was 20 months). He still gets excited when we turn to the airplane page. Now, he can recite the words with me. The illustrations are wonderful, including the inside flap on the hardcover edition. This is a fun book!
This simple story grabs the young reader's attention right from the beginning. Using simple words and clear illustrations even a non-reader can follow the story. We especially like the way the story builds up to the last page. My 'non-reader' loved this book so much he is now an eager reading student. We love this book.
