Big trucks, small trucks, dump trucks, tow trucks, and all kinds of other trucks can
be found in this playful touch-and-move book. A backhoe scoops and digs, a cement
truck spins, a tar truck oozes sticky tar, and tabs pull up and out to reveal surprises.
The trucks eventually slow down for a rest, where little hands can lift the flaps to see
animals snuggling up for sleepy-time—under a rising moon. Filled with vibrant art
and adorable characters, this book gives a child everything he’s looking for when he
presses his face against the fence at a construction site!

Once upon a time, there was a little girl from Ohio who drew on sidewalks and dreamt of becoming a REAL artist someday. And she did!
After lots of doodling (and erasing), some schooling, and a cool gig as a staff artist at American Greetings, that little girl (ME!) took a big leap to follow her dream of making children’s books full-time.
Today, my art can be found on everything from greeting cards, baby gifts, stickers, board games, fabric, wallpaper and books, of course! Since making my publishing debut in 2007, I have illustrated and/or authored over fifteen books, earning recognition from groups including the Society of Illustrators, the New York Times Book Review, Scholastic Parent & Child Magazine, and Parents’ Choice. I still live in Ohio with my book-loving family, where I draw on sidewalks and encourage kids (and even grown-ups) to tell their stories and chase their dreams. (Bio via betsysnyder.com)
