Youngsters who are fascinated by trucks will love this alphabet book that features 26 different vehicles with the ABCs. For example, 'A is for apple truck, carting produce to the store. B is for a box truck, with a rolling rear door.'

As the child works through the alphabet he or she will find a dump truck, fuel rig, horse trailer truck, ice-cream truck and huge yellow ore truck that works in mines. When we get to XYZ it becomes a bit of a stretch, but you'll find a truck with an X-ray unit on its bed, a yard truck and odd looking zipper truck.

This playful and light-hearted picture book with its rhyming text will make mastering the ABCs fun for those children who can't get enough of four wheeled vehicles. As you motor through the book notice how the illustrator works the key letters into the pictures of the trucks. You'll find a grapple truck picking up Gs with its massive claw and the mixer truck off-loading a steady flow of Ms down its chute at a construction site.
