Phoenix reads Little Blue Truck Leads the Way and visits Santa!

Well, although we forgot to wear our caps when we read Caps for Sale but Phoenix has some really cute caps and he wore one when we read yesterday afternoon when we read Little Blue Truck Leads the Way by Alice Schertle.

We love this book and have the board book size which is easy to bring with us around the city too. Phoenix enjoyed looking at the great illustrations by Jill McElmurray and all the details, the tree, the birds on the wires of the poles, the stars, the motercycle going over the bridge, buses and more became extra points to mention to Phoenix while we read. I especially loved the illustration with the bird's-eye view of the city and finding the Little Blue Truck among the traffic jam.

Since we live in the city, I also like that city scape and the city concept of it being busy, loud and crowded and the lesson of patience and taking your turn in this book.  Also I'm petite/short so the book based on a short statured underdog truck was really great! We are going to have to check out other books by Alice Schertle, I'm a mom intrigued! Then my husband read the book to Phoenix again and he liked it too.

Check it out for the Nook too or Kindle here.

Phoenix also visited Santa at Macy's yesterday too!

We hope your Christmas stocking is filled with books! Happy Holidays!
