Storybooks are a valuable resource for kids and parents. They foster curiosity, ignite vivid imaginations, hone concentration, improve focus and expand your child’s vocabulary. With that in mind, it’s fun to bring fresh new titles into your home for kids to enjoy.
Big Truck, Little Island
Imagine a very big 20-ton truck with an oversized load being stuck on a tiny island. He’s blocking the only road in and out and the community comes to a standstill. Some have swim meets, some have dance lessons, and a dog who tried to make friends with a skunk needs a bath, but now there is a delay. And the lineup of cars is getting longer and tempers are getting hotter. What will they do? It will be a long time before the road is cleared and a solution is desperately needed. Thanks to some brainstorming, the kids from the various vehicles come up with the perfect solution.
This book has a lovely camaraderie spirit where the whole community looked for the best way to resolve this issue. The illustrations are beautiful and the whole story is written in a rhyming format that gives the story lots of bounce and fun energy. It’s a great rainy/snowy day read. For kids ages 3-7
