Product Description

Review

. . . big, swooshing street sweeper; the taxi with screeching brakes; the busy police car; the frowning bus. The angry traffic standoffs and the small truck's triumph will be welcome fuel for many preschoolers' imaginative play." - Booklist



"It's in the fusion of the old-fashioned with the modern-eclectic - one man in the crowd listens to an iPod - that the book's artistry shines." - Publisher's Weekly

Format: Board book
My son and I loved the original "Little Blue Truck" so much that I ran to the library as soon as I heard about a sequel. Although it falls a bit short in terms of plot and rhythm, "Little Blue Truck Leads the Way" has the same endearing quality as the first and contains an important moral: slow down and take turns. The phenomenal, whimsical urban illustrations add to the book's charm and make it another winner for both kids and parents.

We were given the first Little Blue Truck book as a gift and it quickly became one of our son's favourites, so when I noticed that there was a second book, I added it to an order. It's a bit more of a grower than the first book, and initially I wasn't as taken with it. It's a bit longer than the first original, the plot is not quite as straightforward, and it felt a bit draggy. But the words still flow nicely, and the illustrations are warm and inviting. By the time I had this one memorized (as I did the first), I found that I had come to enjoy it almost as much as the first. My son is very vehicle-oriented, so he enjoyed the presence of so many more cars. If the author and ilustrator decide to continue the series, I will definitely buy the next book.

excellent read for boys and girls alike, my two sons love to anticipate the next rhyming line, great illustrations and the book also delivers a good overall message. Well worth it

My 15 month old loves the Little Blue Truck stories. Lots of things going on in the pictures and super rhymes. I want the new story that's coming out!!

We recieved this book as a 2nd birthday gift for our son and it became his favorite book from the first read. After you have read it once or twice you can create a wonderful "melodic" cruse through the text. This author also has another title about the little blue truck which is equally captivatiating! I would highly recommend both tiles!

My son absolutely loves this series. It's written in an easy to read (for parents) and easy to absorb (for kids) format. This one felt a little long at first but after a few times through, it got placed in heavy rotation and remains amongst his favourite months later.
Great stories, great illustration, I'd definitely recommend.

It is a cute book but not as good, I don't think, as the original little blue truck or little blue trucks Christmas. It may have been because it is the kindle version that it wasn't as enjoyable for the kids but I liked the other two books better. Still a good message for the kids though.
