Are you searching for the best trucks to buy for your truck-loving toddler? You have come to the right place. I have a soon to be 4 years old who is a truck fan. He loves truck books and we have even been through a phase where he will only read books with trucks. So, if you have a child at home similar to mine, this list might help you build your library.
Cars, Trucks, and things that go
This book is all about the beautiful illustrations of different vehicles which included some old-time versions of current vehicles, some unconventional/fun vehicles like bananamobile, Pickle truck, carrot car, etc. Initially, when we borrowed the book from the library(when he was 2 years old) my son didn't show much interest but when we discovered Goldbug, we had so much finding where he is hiding on each page of the book. He also enjoyed the piggie family's picnic trip.
Good night, Good night, Construction site
This book discusses the job that each truck does and how the trucks end their work for the day at the construction site and say good night. When we plan early bedtime, we say night night to each truck and finally say "Alexa, turn the lights off" to doze off for the day.
Where do diggers sleep at night?
When he is so sleepy and asks for a book, this is the one we always chose to read. Quick, simple read covering all the trucks. Each page has different trucks with one of the parents with the baby trucks and talks about bedtime routine like Cleaning up the toys, taking a shower, brushing the teeth, turning the lights off, hugging and kissing, etc.
Three cheers for Kid Mcgear
A wonderful story about the Skid steer and how he joins others trucks at the construction site. First, all of the trucks say, he is tiny and can't do a lot of work. But when he heard the big trucks calling for help, he rescues them using different kinds of attachments along with dump truck and concrete mixer truck.
This book was a score from our library book sale. It is a pretty old style(I mean the tow truck and the scenarios) book but a cute and simple one. My son loves how each people comes to Stanley's garage for different car problems such as flat tire, overheating, etc.
1000 things that go
This I would say is one of the must-have books if your child has an interest in learning about things that go. I got this book as a surprise to keep him engaged in a very long flight(12 hours) to India when he was 1 year old. He loved this very much and happily glanced through the whole flight. Now that he is 4 years old, he still loves this book very much and knows the name of most of the vehicles. He chooses a new page every now and then and asks me to repeat the vehicle names. Definitely check this out, if you don't already have this book.
Convertible Fire Engine
This is a fun and a little expensive one where it is a book, play mat as well as a mini fire truck. We got this as a gift for my son's third birthday. He loves it and asks me to set it up as Firetruck once in a while. A good one to add it your wishlist if you have a budget.
This is another library book sale score. The book has great pictures from real-life construction and my son loves seeing real-life pictures compared to illustrations. So, he learned new construction terminology words like a Mason, scaffolds, Rebar, etc from this book.
