Five Trucks by Brain Floca.
DK Publishing, Inc: NY, 1999.

How can you go wrong with trucks, right? You can't. Kids love trucks. This particular book is not the usual truck book. It has minimal words, only what is necessary to carry it forward. The concept is huge for what on the surface looks like an introduction to trucks. Five varying trucks have different purposes, all working together toward one goal - preparing an airplane for flight. Emphasis is all on the trucks, but it is also clear that the jobs are being portrayed. I like the underlying meaning that will get young viewers and readers thinking.

Reading level on this is harder to judge. The shortness and simplicity usually would mean K-1st, but some of the words might be hard for beginners. Once the reader has been introduced to a variety of sounds, it should be okay, but help with a few words may still be needed.
