One doesn't like to blow his own horn, so I won't comment on the story, Mike's Trucks. However, I would just like to say ALL the other stories in the book are AWESOME! This would be a GREAT Bedtime Story Book or just a book to spend a little together time with your kids teaching them some lessons that they don't have to learn first hand:) Ron Reese Author Mike's Trucks Canton, NC

Good parent-child storytime Jun 2, 2007
This is a heartwarming collection of stories that instills children with real-life messages that always hold true and reminds adults of their own special childhood memories. Very big in character-building, team-building and good old-fashioned entertainment. Good to read over and over, even past the age of 8.
