CCBA 2014 Finalist — From 2014 CCBA Kindergarten to Second Grade Book of the Year


Everyone's heard of a tow truck. And a pickup truck. An ice-cream truck? Of course But what about a quint truck? A lowboy truck? A knuckle-boom truck? Readers will learn about these kinds of trucks--and many more--while learning the alphabet in ALPHABET TRUCKS.

Each letter of the alphabet is accounted for in this introductory concept book for young readers. From the familiar to the unusual, Samantha Vamos writes in snappy verse to present twenty-six different kinds of trucks, explaining where they work and what they do. From a dump truck that unloads a pile of dirt containing the letter "D," to a fuel truck filling up at a tank shaped like the letter "F," Ryan O'Rourke's playful and light-hearted illustrations involve the letters in supporting roles in each scene.

Perfect for the truck lover, ALPHABET TRUCKS provides a fun and accessible way for children to learn their ABCs.
