The Little Crooked Bookshelf

This week's pick is by Cottager: Kara LaReau

Little Blue Truck's Christmas

What it's all about . . .

Beep! Beep! Beep! Little Blue is back, and he has a big job to do — delivering Christmas trees!

Why it’s on the Crooked Bookshelf . . .
We’re big fans of Little Blue (and his previous adventures, Little Blue Truck and Little Blue Truck Leads the Way, and we’re thrilled he’s on the road again!

Our favorite lines . . .
Five green trees
make one big load.
”Beep!” says Blue. “Lets hit the road!”

Our favorite illustration . . .

Why kids will love it . . .
Whether or not they’re already “True Blue” fans, kids will be delighted by his latest adventure, which features a lesson in counting AND a twinkling Christmas tree on the final spread!

Why grown-ups will love it . . .
Playful rhyming text, terrific illustrations, and a story infused with holiday spirit and goodwill.
