Come along for the ride as Frankie the big rig truck takes us on the job, driving past kiddie cars (school buses) and land yachts (RVs). Hear the horn blow and the wipers schwaat the windshield clean. But, BANG SHHUUU Uh-oh: a blow-out Don't worry, a service truck saves the day so we can get the job done and make a very special delivery. Author Jamie Swenson takes readers from zero to sixty with her fast-talking truck and Ned Young's bright and engaging illustrations are perfect for sharing with the youngest truck enthusiasts in this board-book format. Praise for Big Rig (hardcover edition)
" T]he story is consistently entertaining . . . and Young (the Zoomer books) fills his bright, eye-catching scenes with myriad details to explore."
"Youngsters who meet Frankie will be looking for him on every highway, as he's a friend they won't soon forget."
"A friendly, peppy addition to the canon of books for truck-obsessed tots...."
" A] fun read-aloud for toddlers and a good storytime participation book as well."
