PreS-K–This debut tells the story of a shy, anthropomorphized food truck and its owner. Little Lunch Truck and Chef Nina travel throughout town, serving delicious meals. It’s a special day as the pair will be traveling to a “dirty, busy, and loud” construction site for the first time. As they approach the site, the vehicle’s anxiety steadily increases as it ponders how the other trucks will react. The duo pull up to the site as the construction vehicles, all of which are individually named, stop their tasks and watch. Lunch is announced, and the diverse crew of construction workers enjoy Chef Nina’s lauded meals and Little Lunch Truck’s presence. Similar to the “Busy Bus” series by Jody Jensen Shaffer, this is sure to delight vehicle lovers while at the same time touching on the challenges of new experiences.
VERDICT A sweet story of community and things that go—and an additional purchase for most collections.
