Tons of Trucks
illustrated by Betsy Snyder
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt | 2012
This chunky book with interactive tabs, parts that move, and textured sections is perfect for new babies this holiday season. Adorable animals including a kangaroo (complete with joey in her pouch), a turtle, a mouse, and a hippo drive the trucks and work around them.
"Old trucks, New trucks, ARMY CREW trucks!" one page declares and a koala with a pink bow on her head holds a wrench, working on the flat tire on the old truck while genderless cats of every color move "Top Secret" boxes in the Army truck. The little mouse appears on every page and it'll likely be fun for tiny readers to look for it.
The moveable parts are sturdier than most, making this a safe choice for even the most destructive of new book users!
