This poem book seems to be about capturing memories in a children's early childhood, which is good because it's hard to remember things from birth. It captures beautiful memories with grandparents, families, events, etc. I think it's about keeping memories saved in a box where they will stay there forever.

A story about helping others, even if they're mean to your friends (and also maybe an intro to anthropomorphic cars). And like, your friends will help YOU so maybe they'll indirectly help you help the person who was a dick? anyway lots of fun onomatopoeia.

The big city sure is a speedy, noisy place for a country truck like Blue. Buses, police cars, and taxis are everywhere–and soon there's a giant traffic jam!
