HUSH, LITTLE TRUCKER by Kim Norman. Illus. by Toshiki Nakamura. New York: Abrams Appleseed, 2021. 32p. PreS - Gr. 1 E PIC
Young readers will learn about trucks and service vehicles to the words of the classic lullaby, "Hush, Little Baby." When a favorite toy truck becomes buried in the snow, Mama steps in and visualizes the various vehicles they could use to rescue the toy truck. They start out in a jeep and work their was through a forklift, a dump truck, a backhoe, and more, until they decide on the best way to get their toy truck out of the deep snow. The illustrations are composed of wintry colors that beautifully show the sparse landscape amid falling snow.
