'Rumble, rumble, Monster Max. / Can you jump those junkyard stakes? / Up above the trash so high, / Like a rocket in the sky. / Rumble, rumble, Monster Max. / Yep, he jumped those junkyard stacks.'

This is a sample of the many slightly altered nursery rhymes you'll discover in this collection. Every one of them has a truck slant and is accompanied by a full page color illustration of one of the Trucktown crew.

Other rhymes include Hickory, Dickory, Dock (Max raced up the block!), Rub-a-Dub-Dub (Three trucks in a tub!), and Patty Cake, Patty Cake (Dumper Dan, dump me some dirt as fast as you can!). Yes, this is kind of silly but it will also be lots of fun for preschoolers who love this series of books.

With over twenty of lullabies in this collection to choose from there's bound to be more than just one or two that will capture the fancy of your little trucker. Have fun reading them aloud together while you enjoy the action packed illustrations of Monster Max, Little Dan Dumper, Melvin the Cement Mixer, Peter the Payloader and the rest of Trucktown's famous characters.
