KIRKUS REVIEW

 A book that pairs crisp full-color photographs with catchy rhymes that describe the functions of various trucks in the simplest of terms. The verses are written from the trucks' perspectives, e.g., a garbage truck appears near these words: ``See me gobble, grind and mash/while I dine on lovely trash.'' A cement mixer is on display near these lines: ``Cement soup I deliver/turns to sidewalk when it's set.'' From delivery to dump truck, trailer to tow truck, all the standard trucks are represented, along with a few others--an ice-cream vendor, a FedEx truck, and a moving van. Aerial shots, close-ups, head-on angles, and profiles create a visual showcase of trucks at rest and in motion. Wide tire tracks left in the mud close the book, the only evidence that trucks have been there, a fact that young truck lovers will not have forgotten. (Picture book. 2-4)
