Truck Stop - Book Tour and Giveaway!

Truck Stop
By Anne Rockwell
Illustrations By Melissa Iwai


This is a very cute book about a family that runs a truck stop. This family has a little boy who know every truck and every driver that comes through their truck stop on a daily basis. He knows them so well that he knows just what they like to eat and drink... and just who is missing.

I originally flipped through this book and then put it in the closet to save it for my son when he gets a little bigger. But then I changed my mind and took it out for a bedtime story with my daughter. She thought it was great! She loved to learn the names of some new trucks and now she asks me when we are driving what the different trucks are. And she thought the illustrations were fun and colorful. I loved that some of the illustrations were full page... so fun!

What I loved most about this story was how loving and caring the little boy is. He is so happy to see everyone and is eager to help when one of the trucks is in trouble. What a great message to share with your kids! And he is also very helpful to his parents with running the truck stop... what more could you ask for?!?

Check out Melissa Iwai's website for some fun activities, including a coloring sheet for kids. You can also visit Anne Rockwell's website to learn more about her and the books she has written.
