    Children's scifi-horror story set in an alternate universe where dogs are sharply divided into two massively unequal classes. The ruling class has presumably taken advantage of a hole into our dimension in order to import technology. The tech pervades the lives of these dogs, even though very few of them seem to understand how it works. They walk upright, drive, wear clothes, etc, but the slightest breakdown induces panic.

The ruling class has presumably taken advantage of a hole into our dimension in order to import technology. The tech pervades the lives of these dogs, even though very few of them seem to understand how it works. They walk upright, drive, wear clothes, etc, but the slightest breakdown induces panic. The starving underclass is forced to resort to highly coordinated sabotage of freight liners just to meet their basic needs. Even then, they live as dogs, naked and walking on all fours, except for one thing: the interdimensional wormhole has somehow given them human teeth. In the end, the oppressors are brought down by the one thing they can't change: the dog brain. Pretty good parable about blindly allowing poorly understood technology to infiltrate our lives (ala Black Mirror) and the dangers of cargo cult thinking (ala cargo cults). I wasn't expecting such implied depth from a board book.

    Deep read. Good to teach people how to count, but the story doesn’t really match the horror of what’s happening in the pictures.

    This is a great book for counting and rhyming. The book has a fun flow to it and it give children the opportunity to hear repetitions.

    My Truck is Stuck! by Kevin Lewis, illustrated by Daniel Kirk tells the story of a truck "haulin' a great big load" that gets stuck in a hole, while progressively larger vehicles try to help get it out. Readers and listeners will count while different vehicles work together to extricate the stuck truck. A car, a moving truck, a jeep, a schoolbus and a towtruck all work at freeing the stuck truck. The large, bold font and lots of repetition make this a solid choice for transitional readers.

Readers and listeners will count while different vehicles work together to extricate the stuck truck. A car, a moving truck, a jeep, a schoolbus and a towtruck all work at freeing the stuck truck. The large, bold font and lots of repetition make this a solid choice for transitional readers. The rhythm and rhyme are infectuous, making this is a surefire hit as a read-aloud. The illustrations were prepared using oil paint over sand and modeling paste on masonite, giving the art a textural look that matches the desert setting. The comic-like, funny, bright illustrations perfectly match the silly story and extend it, as veiwers watch and laugh as sneaky animals (prairie dogs, or gophers, or maybe beavers) empty the dump truck of its heavy load of bones. The dog characters are oblivious as the cargo disappears. Funny details include a moving van worker blowing bubbles and a jeep passenger flying a kite. The tire track endpapers are great! Kids who like vehicles will love this book. The counting is fun and the rhymes will be repeated during storytimes. Perfect for a transportation theme. This is kid tested and highly recommended. Beep, Beep! Vroom, vroom! For ages 2 to 6, counting, transportation, trucks, rhymes, read-aloud, and for fans of Kevin Lewis and Daniel Kirk.

    Nice rhyming and simple story. My 2 year old nephew loved this book. I think we read it 13 times in 3 days.

    Cute book with repetition and things going on in the background to take notice of as they are trying to get the truck 'un-stuck'. Fun coincidence is that we were also reading Tea Rex by Molly Idle. My three year old grandson was able to make a connection between the books (that I didn't plan and had no idea about since we had never read these books before). When Tea Rex comes for tea, the children grab one another and have to puuuulllll Tea Rex into the house because he is so large and won't fit Cute book with repetition and things going on in the background to take notice of as they are trying to get the truck 'un-stuck'.

In My Truck is Stuck, the cars line up and pull together to get the truck out of the hole. Just a little something that he noticed while reading and was able to make a connection to another book. Fun book to read. I recommend. :)

    The Truck is Stuck is about two characters driving a truck full of goodies gets stuck in a pothole. Strangers passing by offer assistance but have had little success. After five people attempted to help they still couldn't get out of the pothole. Luckily the next stranger to pass by was a tow truck driver who picked the stuck truck right out of the pothole and saved the day.

Strangers passing by offer assistance but have had little success. After five people attempted to help they still couldn't get out of the pothole. Luckily the next stranger to pass by was a tow truck driver who picked the stuck truck right out of the pothole and saved the day. These little molerat critters successfully stole every goodie out of the back of the stuck truck at the end giving the reader a little laugh. The overall theme would be shedding light to the act of helping others who are in need. It is good to expose children to the act of kindness so when they grow older they might just lend a helping hand when needed. While reading My Truck is Stuck I felt entertained, the illustrations were vibrant and creative, the build-up was interesting because I honestly wasn't sure how the truck was going to break free, especially since there were five people attempting with no success. I would recommend My Truck is Stuck because of how it exposes children to a quality foundation of kindness. The more children are around it the more likely they will emulate the act of helping.

    M loves this book. Each time we read it, we have to immediately read it "again!". The text is rhythmic and has rhymes, featuring such memorable phrases as "Rotten luck. Can't go! My truck is stuck." And "Help, please help, does anyone know how to make my stuck truck go?" The characters are all dogs, and it has a weirdly dystopian feel (why are there strange gopher-dog-woodcuck creatures gnawing on bones in the middle of the desert...?). The illustrations are not my cup of tea, but M loves this on M loves this book. Each time we read it, we have to immediately read it "again!".

    This is a fun book about a stuck dump truck. It does have a cadence, but it takes a page or tow to get the flow right. The illustrations are fun and colorful and there is enough action verbs to get kids involved during storytime.

    This is a great book to read for Emergent literacy. There's also a counting numbers aspect in the book when counting the vehicles, so that's fun!

    Three stars for the text, which rhymes but doesn't quiiiiiite flow. An extra star for the superb artwork. I love it when the illustrations tell an extra story.

    My son loves this book. It's rare that a library borrow is such an instant, read-it-10-times-in-a-row book, but this one was. If your kid likes trucks, check out this fun rhyming picture book.

I'm not sure the rhyming works all that well, but it's cute and kids will enjoy watching the prairie dogs unloading the truck while our driver tries to get his truck unstuck.

    This was a fun one--I particularly liked the ending when I realized that the gophers took the load the truck was carrying all throughout the book. I think kids will enjoy seeing that happen.

    Read in board book format, my toddler loves the pictures of the trucks and vehicles throughout, but the story was a bit text heavy and did not keep her attention.

    There is a cute rhyming scheme to this story, and young students will enjoy counting to ten. The illustrations are great!

    We loved this one. I got real sick of reading it. But I loved when my preschooler re-enacted it with his trucks.
