KCLS Recommends: Children's - Preschool: Things That Go
Annotation:When an ice-cream truck breaks down in the middle of his street and blocks a growing number of other busy vehicles, a little boy remembers the important functions that each subsequent truck performs and devises a helpful solution.
Annotation:After preparing the boiler and putting the luggage away, the super-sized dinosaurs are ready for their exciting train ride until unexpected twists and turns and a set of bad brakes make it even more memorable than any of them could have expected!
Annotation:A picture book that not only shows kids how to learn to ride, but captures what it feels like to fall . . . get up . . . fall again . . . and finally "by luck, grace, and determination" ride a bicycle!
Annotation:When a dump truck "haulin' a great big load" gets stuck in the mud, progressively larger vehicles try to pull it out, in a lyrical read-aloud where young truck drivers are introduced to the ins and outs of hauling, beeping, and repairing.
