Nonfiction / Children (ages 3-6)
By Paul Collicutt
In “This Truck,”
Collicutt brings little readers a boldly-colored display of trucks
- little ones, big ones and enormous ones. Page after page, little
readers are introduced to various trucks at work. There’s
a truck that carries a rocket. There are trucks with cranes. There
is a truck that sweeps the street, and one that travels in a convoy.
Each one is different and does a special job. No matter the size
of the truck or the job it does, the little ones will gasp in delight
at the sight of each one.
those with a grown-up obsession for trucks, Collicutt includes drawings
on the inside covers of history’s most popular trucks, such
as the Ford Model T fire engine (USA, 1919), the Morris Royal Mail
van (U.K., 1946), Labatt’s Streamliner (Canada, 1948), and
Volkswagen Model 261 (Germany, 1960).
a wonderful nonfiction book for both grownups and kids alike.
