I have three reasons for my book selection this month. One, April is National Poetry Month. Two, Jon Scieszka is awesome. And three, Truckery Rhymes is one of my 2-year-old son’s favorites books.
We are big fans of Jon Scieszka’s other Trucktown picture books — Smash! Crash! and Melvin Might? — so when we found Truckery Rhymes in the library it was a MUST borrow. And we borrowed it and borrowed it and borrowed it. Thank goodness we finally have a brand-new copy to call our own.
Truckery Rhymes is a compilation of all your favorite nursery rhymes … with a truck-themed twist. The book jacket calls them “rowdy rhymes” and “honk-along songs” in “one big, noisy, high-octane collection.” Each rhyme features a Trucktown friend and is more clever than the last.
Take this Trucktown rendition of “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” out for a spin and see what you think.
