PreS-K—Little Blue Truck and his friend Toad take a drive on a pretty spring day and they encounter an array of animals on their way. The illustrations are done in a folk-art style. Pastel pink and purple colors and the presence of flowers throughout add to the book's cheerful seasonal look. The artwork successfully captures the progression through the addition of animal passengers as the trip develops and a series of flaps that can be lifted to reveal an assortment of hidden baby animals. The narrative has a simple and effective rhyme scheme and pairs with the illustrations seamlessly. VERDICT A great choice for encouraging young children to learn to identify animals and reinforce counting skills. This book is a fun read to celebrate the spring season.—Deanna Smith, formerly at Mamaroneck Public Library, NY
