What youngster doesn’t love trucks? Children ooh and aah every time they see a truck - big ones, small ones, trucks of any color. The very original Samantha Vamos has penned a book containing a multitude of trucks each of which is paired with a letter of the alphabet. For instance children will find the letter T with a tow truck, M with mixer truck, etc. Now, they may have heard of those trucks but what about a zipper truck? A quint truck?
Yes, young ones will not only learn about different trucks but they’ll also be learning their ABC’s - and having a great deal of fun while doing it. Vamos presents each truck and letter pairing in sparkling rhyme, such as
“S is for snowplow truck - snowy streets to clear and groom.
“T is for tow truck, with a hook, chain, and boom.”
Bright full- color illustrations by Ryan O’Rourke are full page size and sure to catch eyes. Recommended for youngsters ages 3 - 6 Alphabet Trucks is both entertaining and educational.
