Overview

For kids who love trucks, here comes the definitive guide to catching and taming one of your own from the creators of the hit picture book How to Train a Train.

Want a pet truck? Rumble up to this handy guidebook offering everything you need to know. Bone up on habitat: monster trucks like abandoned parking lots; moving trucks live in busy neighborhoods; ice-cream trucks and snowplows migrate in the winter. Pick the right breed for your home (a car transporter in a small apartment would not be a wise choice). Learn to identify your truck by its tire tracks, and soon, with the lure of some orange cones, you’ll have a loyal vehicle following you home, a happy hum under its hood. With an eighteen-wheeler-size nod to pet-care guides, Jason Carter Eaton and John Rocco put young readers in the driver’s seat for a road trip to truck-dreamer bliss.

Based on the book title, I wasn't exactly sure what this book was going to be about. But I loved the smiling kids on the front. And what little boy doesn't love trucks! I know my son did when he was younger. Anyway, this story is adorable. A little boy is talking to the readers and telling them how to track down and catch a truck to keep as a pet. He talks about all different kinds of trucks with funny personifications, like ice cream trucks traveling south for the winter. This step by step guide is sure to have young readers giggling. It's very creative. I especially loved the comments about laying out construction cones for the truck to follow and making the truck feel useful. The illustrations that accompany this story are delightful. The colors are vibrant and the tone is whimsical. This was an all-around fun read. http://www.momsradius.com/2016/09/kid-lit-how-to-track-truck.html
