Book review: Troto and the Trucks, by Uri Shulevitz

Shulevitz, Uri. Troto and the Trucks. Margaret Ferguson Books/Farrar Straus Giroux, 2015. ISBN 978-0-374-30080-7. 25 pgs. Ages 2-4. P8/Q7

Shulevitz Troto and the TrucksThe trucks and cars in this story have big bulging eyes in appealing illustrations that make this a inviting story.  The big trucks are bullying little Troto a “bug on wheels.”  The trucks told little Troto to meet them and have a race at high noon.  The trucks were no longer laughing when little Troto saves the day by helping the stranded racers.  In the end the trucks were not laughing at Troto but were thanking him.  This is a fun story about bullying, helping and being the best you can be.
