Item description for Truck Board Book (Caldecott Collection) by Donald Crews...

Follows the journey of a truck from loading to unloading.

Publishers Description

Truck is written and illustrated by the celebrated creator of Freight Train, Bigmama's, School Bus, and many other classic and award-winning picture books for young children. Truck was named a Caldecott Honor Book by the American Library Association and was also named an ALA Notable Book for Children. It is an ideal book to share with preschoolers, both at home and in the classroom--especially those who love books about transportation

In this wordless picture book, a large, bright red trailer truck packed with tricycles moves through pages of fog, truck stops, and crowded highways. "Beautifully executed and appealing."--School Library Journal

Reviews - What do customers think about Truck Board Book (Caldecott Collection)?

Awful book! Deceptive description.  Feb 28, 2008
The book description is very deceptive. The description makes it sound as if the book shows all types of scenery as the Truck travels the U.S. I thought it would be a great book to help my youngster see a bit of America. But beware, most of the pages are ONLY close-ups of the side of the Truck and of road signs. Only 3 or 4 pages show scenery; very disappointing. I thought the book was so awful that I am returning it, paying the postage, and don't care if I lose money on the deal.
for the graphics lover  Jan 23, 2008
this book surprised me by having no words, but son still pesters me to "read" it every time he sees it....i HAVE to hide it sometimes!
great!  Jul 13, 2007
This book is masterful at telling a story with just the pictures. The illustrations are crisp and clean yet also richly detailed, and it's fascinating to watch how Crews moves the narrative along with just images (remember, it's mostly just vehicles and the surrounding city- or landscape). This has been such a favorite for my son that he has affectionately nicknamed it "Truck by Donald"!
Toddler favorite  Nov 2, 2006
This book is very popular in our house, getting my son to agree to story time (and thus the inevitable nap or bed time that follows) when he is in full fight mode. My two year old loves this book! I would give it five stars based on his love for it except for the fact that there are times that Mommy is not in the mood to be creative and make up her own story to it since it is strictly a picture book. Most of the time, it is not a problem, the pictures make the story easy to tell, but sometimes I am just not in the mood. However, my son adores this book and has learned how the pictures help tell the story as we discuss, for example, which way the truck will go when it reaches a fork in the road and how there is fog on the bridge. As a certified early childhood teacher, I know how important that skill is in learning how to read, so I love that about this book. All in all, this book is a wonderful addition to our home library.
Nice Illustrations!  Jun 30, 2006
My one year olds like to flip through this book. They love trucks, so anything with the theme works for them. Warning: if you are going to read this one aloud, you'll have to make up the story - no text.
