Twenty Big Trucks in the Middle of the Street

By Mark Lee
Illustrated by Kurt Cyrus

Count the trucks getting stuck in a traffic jam in this rhythmic read-aloud sure to draw in kids who love everything on wheels.

One ice-cream truck selling everything sweet breaks down and blocks the middle of our street. If you’re a little boy on a bike, an ice-cream truck on your street is always a welcome sight. But what if the truck breaks down and blocks the mail truck behind it (now there are two), not to mention a third truck carrying hay? One by one, trucks of all types and sizes and functions are sure to pile up behind, offering ample opportunity for ogling — and counting. And maybe the boy’s idea for putting one of the trucks to good use might even save the day!

  • Debut picture book from Mark Lee with illustrations from critically-acclaimed illustrator Kurt Cyrus.
  • Rhyming text and a counting element make this a great read-aloud.
  • Features trucks of all sizes and types - the perfect choice for truck lovers!
