Love is a Truck words by Amy Novesky pictures by Sara Gillingham (2016)
This board book is a great choice for baby and toddler storytimes. The simple rhythmic text combines love of a favorite toy, the love shared between siblings, and different kinds of vehicles--a winning combination that is just the right length to introduce some complex vocabulary and concepts without losing the audience. Sweet as pie, this is one your audience will love.

Sample text from the first two spreads:
"Love is a truck, shiny and new.
Lights and sirens that go woo! woo! woo!
Love is a fire engine, red as a heart.
A ladder truck, spotted dog in the back"
