Trucks by Anne Rockwell

Bloomsbury, 2014. ISBN 9780802736420.
(Age: 5+) Trucks is a great picture book for any young boy (or girl) who likes trucks. The text is simple and descriptive and the pictures are colourful and fun. It is a board book which makes it great for little hands and means it should survive any rough play.
A great book for parents to read with their children aged 1 year + and for more independent readers aged 6+. Children can learn what different trucks do and how they help us. The detailed pictures will be great for talking to children about objects in their world.
