Praise for The Little Dump Truck

Praise for The Little Dump Truck:

“Preschoolers will love this book.” —School Library Journal

“The sharp-edged bright blue chassis, lemon-yellow dumper and smiling grill of this hard-working construction vehicle with his cohort of fuel trucks, vans, buses, pickups on heavy stock paper would have made this title a winner in my book. Wait—that’s not all! The text can be sung to the nursery favorite, ‘I’m a little teapot!’ Try it!” —NickJr.com

“The titular little dump truck cheerily gives the youngest listeners the lowdown on its duties.” —Kirkus Reviews

“A fast storytime favorite.” —Booklist
