The best-selling Little Blue Truck is now available in Spanish! El camioncito Azul is a joyful cacophony of animal and truck sounds in verse that will have youngsters beeping and quacking—and begging for one more go-round! Along the way, readers see that it pays to be kind to others. Jill McElmurry’s gouache illustrations of wild-eyed farm animals and country roads are warm and wonderful, suiting the cheerfully rhyming text of Alice Schertle to a T. This Spanish translation by award-winning poet Isabel Campoy maintains the rhyme and charm of the original, and the sturdy board book pages are sure to withstand many riotous read-aloud sessions.
