"Trucks bring ice cream.

Trucks bring blocks,

books and bulldozers,

dolls and socks."

Through mountains and flatlands, past deserts and towns, the trucks are rolling! With its rhyming text and bold illustrations, Trucks Roll! invites kids along on a day in a trucker's life and shows that many things we enjoy depend on the trucker's work.

""Trucks have trailers./ Trucks have cabs./ Some haul rabbits./ Some haul labs."" (The last reference is to the dog breed, not research facilities.) But Frazier's (the Stanley series) digitally colored pictures may offer enough visual compensation to hold readers' attention.
