I Am an Ice Cream Truck

Ace Landers, illus. by Paolo Migliari, Scholastic/Cartwheel, $6.99 (8p) ISBN 978-0-545-13716-4

"I am an ice cream truck. Can you hear my song?" Readers can push the rear wheel of this truck-shaped book (which is preceded by titles about garbage and fire trucks) to hear a recognizable tune ("Do Your Ears Hang Low?"), as neighborhood families gather to get their treats from the blonde woman behind the wheel. Kids who've learned to recognize the truck's telltale sound should enjoy the sound effects and gentle neighborhood scenes. Up to age 3. (May)
