RED TRUCK, YELLOW TRUCK is a delightful, rhyming story about different trucks as they go about their day. The trucks encounter farm vehicles, construction vehicles, and more throughout the town all the way until they go to sleep at night. Within the rhymes there are also a couple of questions asked of children, inviting them to interact with the story.

What I loved: This was such a colorful and delightful read for vehicle lovers. Beginning with the Red Truck and Yellow Truck at the start of the day, the book follows their journeys around town with a focus on all the different vehicles they encounter. The rhyming, poetic text rolls off the tongue and is really fun both to read and to hear aloud. There are a couple questions within the text asking children if they can spot the plow truck and, later, which truck they would drive that add a nice interactive element to keep little ones engaged. This book, with its simplicity and adorable illustrations, would work well for toddlers and preschoolers.

The illustrations are full of colors, trucks, and cute animals throughout. Full page, detailed illustrations will give readers a lot to visually explore on each page. The images are really fantastic and attention-grabbing, with plenty of different types of vehicles that are great for truck lovers! The font is large, clear, and relatively brief on each page, making this great for young/short attention spans with pages that can turn as quickly as they would like.

What left me wanting more: As a small thing, the poem is not quite a cohesive story, but the images tell the story of how the trucks go about their day. Some children may appreciate this style while it will go over others' heads. Preschoolers may start to make the connections on their own.

Final verdict: A delightful day with trucks, RED TRUCK, YELLOW TRUCK combines a fun poem with brightly colored illustrations for a picture book that is sure to be a win for toddlers and preschoolers.
