This book looks at various types of trucks and what they do. It has a simple rhyming pattern and is a very simple book. The story isn’t the greatest, but the illustrations are fun. Some pages are better than others which puts this book steadily in the middle. I’m not sure it’s one of those books that would be picked up frequently unless you happen to own it. Especially if the truck book bin also contains Good Night Good night construction site.

This cute picture book is all about color. As you read this book to your youngest they learn about the color of certain animals. Then they learn what happens when two colors are blended together. They also learn the importance of sharing and celebrating differences. Cute, simple and educational.

A wonderful book to read to a child before they begin their first day of school, or to read to a class on their first day of school. It shows them that no matter what their differences they are all better together. Plus, you get the added bonus of teaching children about mixing colors. A win, win if you ask me.

This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
I read this with my 5 year old grandson to get his opinion. I worried that the book would not hold his interest but that was no problem. While the story is very simple, it encourages counting and the illustrations are great. I asked him his favorite part and he said when Mattison was being followed by all these animals and was scared. He also loved the gathering of all his friends at the end. I'm sure I will be reading this to him many times.
