It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Little Blue Truck is spreading cheer by delivering Christmas trees to his animal friends. Can you help count each green tree from one to five and back again? Don’t forget to save one for Blue! Beep! Beep!
With the gentle rhythm and signature illustration style that made Little Blue Truck a household name, Blue’s new adventure is full of holiday warmth. Sturdy cardstock pages, a compact and child-friendly text, and flashing colored Christmas lights on the final page come together in a novelty gift book that’s sure to be the favorite treat of the season.
This Christmas-themed book is perfect for Little Blue Truck lovers. It promotes counting, sharing, and Christmas cheer! I especially love the illustrations in this book, and the twinkling lights on the last Christmas tree are a lovely touch.
Fans of Little Blue Truck will enjoy this simple counting book full of Christmas trees and a little holiday cheer. Doesn’t helping others make it easier to enjoy what we have? The sparkling lights caught me a little by surprise, but it was a fun addition.
