A simple and fun book that will appeal to toddlers and the young at heart.

Cute underdog story for kids who love trucks.

Good story, but the cover page inside the book has a rather creepy picture of a truck in a dark garage facing out with its lights on. Needless, and actually bothered my son to the point where he didn't want to read the book.

Everyone has a job to do, and working together to keep the town safe, and clean. Until a big snow storm hits, and everyone gets stuck! Luckily a Supertruck appears to dig out the city, enabling all the other trucks to do their jobs. Much like Superman, the true identify of this Supertruck is unknown to the trucks of the town. However, readers are in on the secret.

Illustrations are bright and simile enough to be seen from a distance, focusing on the trucks. This is a good book for reading to groups, as everyone can see the pictures and follow the story.

Good for storytimes about transportation. Simple storyline and illustrations, good for toddlers.

This is a very short and simple book about work trucks. Text and pictures are very engaging for toddlers. It went over well in toddler story time, but reading one-on-one would allow for extended conversations and vocabulary building.
