This book is about how goods are transported from one place to another. This would be a great book to use with older children (grades 3-5) especially now that gas prices are so high and all merchandise and grocery items have increased in price. This book could be used to go along with a social studies lesson on transportation and how the price we pay for something is interconnected in how it gets to the store that we buy it from.

This is my boys' all-time favorite book. Lincoln actually has it memorized. The illustrations are bold and fun, and the poetry is awesome. Essential for any truck lovers!

A surprisingly poetic little book with great painted illustrations. Both of my sons adore it.

Prose is rhthmic, mimicking the sounds of trucks on the road.
