“Beep! Beep! Beep!/ December’s here!/ Little Blue Truck/ is full of cheer.” With a wreath affixed to his grill, Schertle’s Little Blue Truck is ready for Christmas, and his tree-delivering duties let readers work on their counting skills. After five trees are loaded into the truck, various animal families claim them: “ ‘Honk!’ says the goose./ ‘The big one, please!’/ Now there are four/ green Christmas trees.” Luckily, there’s a tree left for the Little Blue Truck—one that glows with flashing twinkle lights on the final spread of this lively story. Up to age 3. (Sept.)
