Soothe truck-loving toddlers off to sleep with this vehicle-themed bedtime picture book
Hush, little trucker, you’re in luck.
Mama’s gonna find your lost toy truck.
A new spin on the classic song “Hush, Little Baby,” this truck-themed lullaby follows a mother and child as they discover different vehicles, from a bulldozer to a front-end loader. Kim Norman’s gentle rhyming text, paired with Toshiki Nakamura’s imaginative illustrations, makes this picture book a great option for bedtime read-alouds.
"Prep those vocal cords and sing your scales, because this is a book that begs to be sung repeatedly and with gusto."Kirkus Reviews —
