Zooom! Wooeeee . . . ! "Make way!" The big city sure is a speedy, noisy place for a country truck like Blue. Everywhere Blue looks, he sees buses, police cars, taxis, vans, a street sweeper, and even the mayor’s limousine. With everyone pushing to be first, soon there’s a giant traffic jam! But even a wrangle-tangle is no match for Little Blue Truck, who comes to the rescue in true Blue style.
Brimming with bright colors, sounds, and city energy, this new adventure makes working together and taking turns more fun than ever.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

". . . big, swooshing street sweeper; the taxi with screeching brakes; the busy police car; the frowning bus. The angry traffic standoffs and the small truck’s triumph will be welcome fuel for many preschoolers’ imaginative play."—Booklist   "It's in the fusion of the old-fashioned with the modern-eclectic—one man in the crowd listens to an iPod—that the book's artistry shines."—Publisher's Weekly

Past review suggested that this book had great audio sounds of various characters within the story, not so. Very unhappy with this version since my grandson enjoys the audio books most of all. I was looking forward to the sounds of cars & trucks that he enjoys. I wouldn't have purchased this knowing that there is no audio!**

My son is 2 years old and he absolutely loves the Little Blue Truck books. Mama loves em too! :-) They're very colorful and give lots of opportunity to be dramatic.

I bought this one for my son who is 7 months old and instead my 3 yo daughter has claimed it as her own. We love to read it together and it's her current favorite. I can imagine that in a few years time, it will also be a favorite of my son's. The graphics are great and the story is cute. Little blue is a great truck!

Illustrations are fantastic! Story line was okay.

When Little Blue Truck goes to the big city, everyone seems to be rude and in such a rush. With attitudes and engines at full-throttle, Little Blue Truck reminds everyone that slow and steady will win the race. The second book about Little Blue Trucks adventures, Little Blue Truck Leads the Way is a very nice beginners book, with a great moral and fabulous illustrations by Jill McEmurry. I recommend this book for all beginner readers.

My first child's book review!My 2 year old loves this book. I have read it to him for about 4 days straight and he sleeps with it under his pillow. The text has a pleasant tone and rhyme. The pictures are interesting, but not overwhelming. He has learned the word 'skunk.

I often give this book, along with the first one "Little Blue Truck" for new-baby gifts, often with a little toy blue truck!

My Grandson loves this book! He asked for this after I got him The LIttle Blue Truck, he loves the stories and actually got the lesson each book taught. I wish they would make these books into a series!

I think this book is pretty good but we enjoy the other Little Blue Truck better. I think it's my sons age and he's more interested in animals so he gets into it more than this one. This book is also a little long so at 18 months he seems to be "done" with the book before I can get it all read. LOVE the illustrations though!

I bought both THE LITTLE BLUE TRUCK and THE LITTLE BLUE TRUCK LEADS THE WAY for our 2 1/2 yr old grandson and he absolutely loves both books. He wants them read over and over and over again !! The pictures and the lilting rhyming narrative are so captivating to young eyes and ears. My son, who reads to our grandson at bedtime has the entirety of both books memorized ... and our grandson can be heard repeating lines from the books to his cars and trucks during play. HIGHLY RECOMMEND both books !!!

Must say first - my son loves The Little Blue Truck. But, this one is not nearly as good as the original. The animal noises are much more interesting and entertaining to him than the all-car cast of Little Blue Truck Leads the Way. But, that being said, still a fantastic book loved by my little guy.
