THE ROAD THAT TRUCKS BUILT

Writen by Susanna Leonard Hill

Illustrated by Erica Strolich

Published by Little Simon (2017)

Opening lines:

“This is the traffic that’s moving too slow. Cars and buses have nowhere to go. What is the answer? I’m guessing you know.”

Synopsis:

Bulldozers, scrapers, graders, and more are hard at work making sure that every car, truck, and motorcycle can get where they’re going fast! With smooth writing by Susanna Leonard Hill and heavy-duty illustrations by Erica Sirotich, The Road That Trucks Built shows the importance and effectiveness of teamwork in a picture book that’s perfect for on the road readers.

Why I like this book:

  • Great read aloud!
  • Bold colorful illustrations. Kids will LOVE the anthropomorphic vehicles.
  • And they will also love the sunoke rhyme that invites participation.
  • PLUS, on the cover is the COOLEST wheel that spins and shows kids the various vehicles they will be reading about.
