Truck Stop

Anne Rockwell

Before sunrise a little boy and his parents go to work at their busy truck stop, serving breakfast and greeting friends. The rhythm of their day beings with food prep, tire checks, and regular customers: Sam and his eighteen-wheeler, Maisie and her Milk Tank, then Diligent Dan and his Moving Van. When the little boy boards the Big Yellow Bus he sees Green Gus, the old pickup truck being rescued by Pete and Priscilla in Tow Truck. Mixed-media collage illustrations provide bright colors and a welcoming atmosphere for young truck lovers. Ages 4-6
