“Whatever needs hauling
From pizza to pigs,

Can Ride right along
On those fabulous rigs!”

"Jane explores trucks from an atypical angle, featuring the perspective of a child accompanying her truck driver parents on a long-distance delivery. Toy truck in hand, the girl spots the usual suspects―dump truck, digger, fire engine―en route, as well as some less standard varieties: drill truck, panel truck, and food truck (‘BBQ 2 G’). When the family finally unloads their cargo, the child wistfully imagines becoming a truck driver in the future. Simple, cheery rhymes underline vehicles’ many uses and Gott’s straightforward illustrations offer an equally sunny picture of life on the road (nary a traffic jam in sight). Educational back matter encourages readers to find a dozen different vehicles scattered throughout and describes the unique attributes of each."—Publishers Weekly
