Praise For Chuck's Truck (Green Light Readers Level 1)…
"Filled with rhyming language, this story will be a boon for beginning readers who will easily identify the rhyming words . . One of the book's strongest features is the way the illustrations give visual clues to support the narrative while still adding to the humor of the plot. Anderson uses a crayon-resist technique to great effect, and the pictures are filled with dimension and texture. The bright colors are vibrant and energetic. This title will be a welcome addition to most collections, not only for its appeal to newly independent readers, but also for fun barnyard and vehicle storytimes." -- School Library Journal
"Both the pithy rhyming text and the bold, expressive animals are sure to tickle preschoolers' funny bones, while the gradually introduced, playfully reiterated words and rhymes also suit the cheery tale to beginning readers." --Horn Book
