My 6 year old son recently borrowed this book from our local library.

The book revolves around Big Rig. While his friends are collecting items, Big Rig comes through and knocks the items down. Ends up, they were collecting items to build him a birthday cake. They give him the cake and of course he smashes it too.

My son thought that Big Rig was really mean. Which is what the story is suppose to show him as, the bully. The bad thing is, the book just ends with no lesson that bullying is bad. It i
Little Kid Reaction: My boys enjoyed the book. My 4-year-old is *starting* to read, so the repetition of the words meant that he was able to recognize and read them.

Big Kid Reaction: I liked the book because the words were just right for a new reader. It was short enough that it stops before the child gets frustrated.

This will appeal to young truck lovers of which there are many, however in this brief story (appropriate for a level one easy reader) the few words are not the ones usually found in a level one - barrel, decorates, the names Gabby and Melvin. The story is appealing - but I would have preferred language that was more accurately a level one.
I had high hopes for this. For those familiar with the characters or young beginning readers, this will do fine. But as an overall piece of reading, it holds together very loosely. It's hard to distinguish the characters, and a plain font might have been easier to read. Nevertheless, the art and author's name ensure this will generate attention!
This book is funnier when read alongside BATTLE BUNNY. Which you should do.
Fans of Trucktown will enjoy this story. For elementary crowds it's a bit too simplistic for use with a group, but individual students would appreciate the humor.
My boys love Jon Scieszka's Trucktown series.
