Praise For Little Blue Truck's Springtime

"The cheerful scenes offer plenty of opportunities for animal identification and counting, and a closing scene brings together all the little ones for a festive finale that sees them decked out in floral garlands."-Publishers Weekly, review, 11/24/2017

"A great choice for encouraging young children to learn to identify animals and reinforce counting skills."--School Library Journal, review

"A vernal celebration...Beautifully rendered two-page tableaux teem with butterflies, blossoms, and vibrant pastel, springtime colors."--Kirkus
