We love to read to Devon; he seems to enjoy his one on one time with his Aunt or me. Anytime I can find a great book, something that will keep his mind on it I will get. This month Harper Collins sent us the Mighty Truck paper, Devon couldn’t wait to have ti read to him, he loves all kinds of trucks, and this book is full of them, not only is it a colorful and enlightening book he follows me when I read it to him.
Meet Clarence, a rickety old truck which goes from average to excellent when an unexpected trip through a mysterious truck wash transforms him.
With pumped-up tires, a revved-up engine, and a squeaky-clean exterior, Clarence becomes a town hero! In his first adventure, Clarence—aka “Mighty Truck”—pulls a friend from the mud, rescues a kitten, and stops a loose beam from destroying Axleburg.
He’s just an ordinary truck, until one fateful day, when an unplanned trip through this weird car wash changes his life forever. All of these great things start happening to him. His tires are pumped up; his engine begins to rev up. He’s being transformed into this Mighty Truck, imagine how he feels now, no longer that muddy old truck, now he’s like a whole new one.
He’s out for any challenge now with his bright laser headlights and his turbo speed. Devon loves this book, he takes it and tries to read it to us. No one recognizes this glistening, “shiny-clean stranger” who comes to the aid of those in need.
With a turbocharged push, he gets his friend Bruno out of a mud jam. He revs his engine and rescues a kitten stuck in a tree, and he even scales tall buildings with his inflated tires and saves the town from impending doom by welding a falling steel girder with his headlight laser beams.
