Big Trucks: Getting the Job Done Together - Children's Book Review and Giveaway


Book Overview:

*Ages 0-4

*There’s a great big job to do, and the trucks know how to get it done. They’ll work together! You and your little one will love Big Trucks: Getting the Job Done Together, a rhyming story about trucks helping each other throughout the workday. You’ll especially love the touch-and-feel elements on every spread.  

*Little ones will love to explore these tactile pages—from rubbery tires to gritty dirt—and learn from the trucks how much fun it can be to work together. With touch-and-feel elements to increase sensory development and simple rhymes to boost vocabulary, Big Trucks will help your child discover something new with every read!!


My Review:

Young children, especially boys, seem to have a fascination with big trucks.  There's plenty of them in this board book.  Big Trucks: Getting the Job Done Together is a story about a crane, dozer, and other trucks who work together to get a job done.  They each have a specific duty but know they work best when they unite as a team.  When the day is done they are happy with the result.

This touch-and-feel book has a few sensory elements.  For instance, they can touch a rubbery tire on one of the trucks and touch the gritty dirt of a road.  Told in rhythmic form, this is a cute short story with delightful illustrations.

Win It!

One person will win a Big Trucks: Getting the Job Done Together children's book.

I like to stick to cars! I have never been on a plane or a train. Although, if I did go on one at some point, I would choose train before plane.

Kelsey Vinson said...

My fav is automobile but if I ever get the chance to ride in an airplane again I will go for it. I loved it. It was cramped and a hassle but I would do it all again in a heartbeat.

I think I'd prefer car, but only if I am driving. I don't do well as a passenger on any trip longer than a couple hours, lol :)

I'm really not a fan of cars, trains, or planes. I feel confined. I would rather walk or take a boat.

Trains and our Dodge Challenger (We LOVE that car and it makes road trips so much more fun!) Although I am afraid of heights and flying makes me a little nervous I prefer that mode of transportation if we are going far because I'd rather spend our vacation time off at our destination having fun, relaxing and playing and doing exciting things rather than spending days driving there and back.

Pam said...

Trains are great fun - at least for short trips; planes are convenient when you have to travel a great distance fast, but my favorite way to travel is in my own car - it's comfortable, gives us the freedom to choose when we leave and how long we stay, and there's a lot more room for us and our stuff.
