While exploring the various sounds that animals make, this book also teaches children that no matter what your size, you can be helpful in various situations.

One of my absolute favorite books in my son's collection! Pretty illustrations, great lesson within the story, fun to read and fun for my son to listen to. Reminds me of The Little Engine That Could. ( )

This story is about a little blue truck who helps a really big truck get out of the mud. This story would be great for students in kinder to second grade. It could be used to teach about sounds as the farms animals all make sounds and so does the truck. Or it could be used to talk about being kind as the little blue truck got help getting out of the mud from his friends whereas the really big truck did not have friends to help him. ( )

The illustrations are cute. The book has a nice rhyme scheme and an important message - that being kind to others is good because your friends will help you in your time of need too. I might use this book when talking about animal sounds, since it has a lot of them, or when talking about friendship, kindness, and helping others. The best moment in the book is when Blue, the little blue truck, goes to help the big Dump Truck who had been rude to him just a moment ago. ( )

Genre: modern fantasy
this is a good book because it tells people that you could always use some friends sometime. Such as when the dump truck got stuck in the mud and no one would help him out because he was in a rush and did not have time to say hi to anyone. But when the little blue truck got stuck all his friends came to help him get unstuck. Another reason this is a good book is the way the illustrator used color in the print of the sounds of each of the characters, such as when the Little Blue Truck beeps the word “beep” is in blue to match the characters color. This is appropriate for lower elementary. ( )
