PreS-K–Two trucks, Mack and Rig, are off for their first day of truck school. In a singsong, rhyming narrative, the young vehicles are paired up to complete circuits, drills, and more. Rig quickly falls behind while Mack finishes first. In the next round, it’s Rig who succeeds, and together, they help one another to tackle the challenges of their first day despite their differing abilities and personalities. Leung’s Southwestern-inspired digital illustrations are bright and bold, packed with action and excitement—sure to keep young truck-enthusiasts glued to the pages and cheering for each truck to do well.
VERDICT A fun twist on the back-to-school genre and an imaginative addition to the popular transportation genre. A recommended purchase.
