This book was recommended to my by a friend whose grandson loves this book. I purchased it for my two year old grandson and he takes it with him everywhere. It immediately became his favorite book out of his large collection!!! Fun for parents to read to him, too.

I read Truckery Rhymes to my Kindergarten classes. They sang, echo read, retold original nursery rhymes. We loved the pictures. I would highly recommend this book for all school and public libraries. It makes a great gift also.

This is a great book. My son is four and he loves it! As a parent, it's really fun to read, too. It is not a story, but a collection of nursery rhymes transformed by trucks/cars/ anything with wheels! For example, rather than "Humpty Dumpty Sat on a Wall" the rhyme is "Wrecker Rosie Sat on a Wall". Sample line from another rhyme: Rumble, rumble Monster Max. Can you jump those junkyard stacks? They are simply fun stories to share and get a giggle out of. The characters are the same as in other Scieszka Trucktown books and that's a good thing. Fun, silly, rhyming, alliterative: great for everyone!

Truckery Rhymes has been a huge hit for my 4 year old. He got the book for christmas and he loves it. He has memorized the stories and reads it to himself and his brother all the time. We really get into the excitement of the book and have a lot of fun with it. Great book!!
