Red Truck, by Kersten Hamilton and Ill. by Valeria Petrone

Rating: 3/5


In this picture book for ages 4-8, we read about a bright red tow truck that is called to help a school bus in trouble. Along the way the road becomes increasingly difficult, but with perseverance, the red truck saves the day.

The clever use of color in this book helps each character leap out of the page and invites the reader to continue engaging with the story. The red tow truck never gives up even though the road ahead is difficult.

I recommend this story to any kid who loves stories about trucks and helping others. A word of warning to all parents: have a red toy truck on standby! Your child will want to re-enact the story after reading.
