    I still love the character and colors, but this book is too busy and abstract in comparison to the first book.

    I was quite happy to find this book, a sequel to Little Blue Truck which is very popular here. This one follows the same kind of pattern, involving Little Blue helping someone else and saving the day with his good manners and considerateness. He's in the big city, which has something of a 30s look to it, and completely overwhelmed and amazed at how big and fast and rather scary it is.

The other vehicles on the road are all so impatient and bossy and soon a traffic jam ensues, and the mayor's limousine dies so Blue offers him a ride, and they all continue on their way in single-file rather than pushing and shoving. While these books do carry a message, a moral, I find I don't mind them too much - there's just something nice about the way the text flows and the message has a good lead-up, as well as being a good lesson for children to learn (hell, and adults as well).

    Simple country folk teaches the busy city folk a seemingly better way to live, and brings inefficiency to their existence. Wrong lesson to be learned, and full of political grandstanding.

    A heartwarming and imaginative fantasy in which someone from the country drives around a city and suddenly all vehicles become courteous drivers who obey all traffic laws and stop honking.

    Hello. I am 1. I think this book is even better than the first one. There are so many good parts: the man sweeping the sidewalk, the traffic jam that has lots of yellow cars, the lady with a brown turtleneck, the smoke coming out of the limo, those bushes by the side of the road, the puppy on the lady's shoulder, and the fire hydrant are particularly wonderful.

    Trying to be fair, this book has good points and bad. I dislike it because when we show behavior we DON’T want kids to do, they become very curious about that behavior and emulate it. Much of this book shows negative behavior — one vehicle after another says things like, “Shove on, Shorty!” or “Hey! Better move, little beeper!”. Yes, in the end, everyone gets along. They all get in a line and celebrate how great the Little Blue Truck is. But that doesn’t change the take-away for a kid. The other Trying to be fair, this book has good points and bad.

Everyone is celebrating Little Blue, and then we see his backside leaving the city. The first time I read it, I thought I had missed a page. Oh, right… the good parts. Well, it’s hard not to like Little Blue himself. He’s cute, folksy, and friendly. I also think the illustrator did a nice job of being inclusive in terms of gender and color. I like the rhythm of the words, too. More minor concerns: What is with the way the people are waving? Am I the only one who thinks they either look like they’re giving a “slow down” sign or the Nazi salute? The waving hands are just weird… Oh, and the cars are on the wrong side of the road in one scene. I don’t think this was meant to depict England.

    Both my daughter and I like this book better than the original Little Blue Truck. It has a better flow and cooler illustrations (and doesn't refer to a character as "Dump," which is not the best name choice, in my opinion). The only slight issue I have with it is that it is a little long (though it is easy to skip a couple of pages if your kid is too young too know, without compromising the story).

    This story was just okay... kind of a disappointment after the very cute Little Blue Truck. Unfortunately, my kids like me to read this one as much as the first... and it's just not as enjoyable.

    A very good message about the importance of taking turns, and full of things that go (trucks, buses, taxis, limos, motorcycles). But there's an anti-urban undercurrent that bothers me far more than my little son.

    My two-year old LOVES this one; it's his favorite of the "Blue Trut" books. The transition from the country into the loud, fast city is near and dear to my heart, as one who moved from the farm into Chicago as a young adult...I feel for Little Blue! The impatience and rudeness one can experience for seemingly no reason in a new setting is something that really hit home to me, and I remember, very vividly, wanting to just throw up my hands and say, "Hey! Everybody relax! You're making it worse by My two-year old LOVES this one; it's his favorite of the "Blue Trut" books.

My kids are exposed to urban environments from birth, and experience the rural life at their grandparents', so they won't have that same experience...but I sure did. My son absolutely loves how busy the pictures are, and has learned so many new words, pointing at all the things in the illustrations and having us label them. There's more going on in these pics than in, say, the original "Little Blue Truck," and he's in the developmental stage right now of poring over pictures and wanting to learn all the words for everything in them. The illustrations in this are great for that, and one of the trucks even says "Sam's Grocery" on the side, which delights my Sam.

    As a little blue farm truck travels through the big city, he takes notice of the buildings and other vehicles and their purposes around him. As in many metropolitan areas, lots of traffic means a traffic jam. When the mayor, sitting in a limo, is kept from his destination when the limo's engine fails, the mayor gets a ride from the little blue truck, who quickly becomes a hero of the city and spreads his message of taking turns and sensible driving practices in the city.

There's plenty and then some to look at in this board book, leaving lots of material to introduce and discuss. A fun rhyme scheme brings new words for the audience to learn and the rhymes have the benefit of great moral content.

    Little Blue Truck heads to the city, but in addition to it being pretty and high, it is also fast and busy! Little Blue gets pushed around and yelled at by other "important" cars and trucks until he has had enough! "You might be fast and I might be slow, but one at a time is the way to go." The mayor sees his good sense and traffic becomes orderly by following (literally) Little Blue and his advice. • A super fun addition to the Little Blue Truck series.

    I like this better than the first one--there's more going on in the illustrations, there's a bit more going on in the story, and it doesn't repeatedly call one of its characters "the dump." It's one of our kid's favorites, and it's not one of my favorites but there are enough things I like about it: nice illustrations, opportunities to make loud screeching noises, a marching band, a mayor who looks like David Dinkins.

    Little Blue Truck Leads the Way is a great book. I like how the cars go, "beep, beep, beep," and the siren goes, "woooeee." I like to make those sounds, too! I like how the cars finally get into line and start being nice. At first they are mean, and I don't like that. I think that kids should read this book because this book teaches them how to be nice to one another, it can make them laugh, and it is fun to read with a mommy or daddy.

    This was a disappointment after loving the first one (The Little Blue Truck). It's quite a lot longer than the first, which on its own is not a problem (although younger kids may lose interest). But this lacks the up-tempo cadence that makes The Little Blue Truck a joy to read. There are too many characters and too much going on, in stark contrast to the perfect simplicity of the first book. Also, the story itself is not nearly as endearing as The Little Blue Truck. This was a disappointment after loving the first one (The Little Blue Truck).

    I had really high hopes since the first one is such a favorite here but I did not like this one. Completely different feel than the soft slow country atmosphere of the first one. Blue is in the city with bossy, rude, negative vehicles. The story doesn't make much sense and centers around the mayor's car. I didn't even read it to my kids, just preview read it and I'm glad I didn't assume because the first was so great this would be too.

    This book is an eye catcher and catchy in its writing. The illustrations are well done and fun to look at. The little blue truck is on every page and it honestly steals the show. The books has lots of ona text with the little blue truck which he says when he see the truck. It is a huge hit in our house and we love reading it. I wish there were more books for the Little Blue Truck. I like this one better than the other (we have that one too and it is great as well).

    All the different vehicles want to be first in line. They all end up in some kind of situation to where they can't be first anymore. The little blue truck saved the day when he helped the Mayor find his way. He was now in charge of leading the way. The other vehicles let him go first and everything turned out smoothly. I think this is a fun read for all vehicle lovers. The different sounds the cars make are fun to sound out and play with. All the different vehicles want to be first in line.
