Little Blue Truck's Beep-Along Book Review

If you're happy and you know it, beep along! 
With this new take on the classic sing-along song, kids can interact with their favorite Little Blue Truck and beep his horn while they visit with all his farm animal friends. Colorful illustrations, bouncy rhyme, and a cuddly truck with built-in squeaker make this a perfect interactive choice for play time and story time.

Our review:

My young family sure did enjoy this interactive read along book. Each page has a very sing-along chime to 'if you're happy and you know it, clap your hands'. 
My two year old son most enjoyed his chance to beep-along, and point out the many farm animals Little Blue Truck passed along on his drive.
My four year old also enjoyed her chance to beep along.

Overall, if I were to suggest this book to families with young children I certainly would. This adorable read gets two thumbs up from all of us!  I would appropriate this book for a child 18m-3yr, when they're most interested to sit and participate with a short story.
