In Little Blue Truck by Alice Schertle, we meet Blue. Blue likes to bump along old country roads, taking time to greet his many animal friends along the way. The horse, sheep, duck, and other friends love to greet Blue as he rambles by. “Neigh, Baa, Quack” say his friends. “Beep” replies Blue. All is well, until out of nowhere a great big dump truck yells “HONK! Coming through! I haven’t got time to pass the day with every duck along the way!” And without slowing down, he roars past Blue and his friends. The dump truck learns an important lesson about being kind when he gets stuck in a puddle of mud and only Blue stops to help him. Blue tries with all his might to un-stick the dump truck, but ends up getting stuck himself! When Blue cries out for help, his many friends come to his rescue. The dump truck decides that it’s time to slow down, be kind, and make some friends. Filled with animal sounds and a slow paced rhyming rhythm, Little Blue Truck teaches a valuable lesson in the importance of friendship. See this book listed in our catalog
