Praise For The Little Dump Truck

“The sharp-edged bright blue chassis, lemon-yellow dumper and smiling grill of this hard-working construction vehicle with his cohort of fuel trucks, vans, buses, pickups on heavy stock paper would have made this title a winner in my book. Wait and that's not all! The text that can be sung to the nursery favorite, "I'm a little teapot!" Try it!” —NickJr.com
“Preschoolers will love this book.” —School Library Journal

“The titular little dump truck cheerily gives the youngest listeners the lowdown on its duties.” —Kirkus Reviews

“A fast storytime favorite.”—Booklist
