Favorite Truck Books and Activities



We love to read stories at our house and since my little guy is so crazy about trucks, any kind of truck or construction vehicle, he has chosen a few books that we just can't stop reading together. He got this book for Christmas and it quickly became one of his favorites. I mean, dinosaurs that are actually trucks! What little boy does not love dinosaurs and trucks. Genius! Dinotrux by Chris Gall (affiliate link) is so fun to read...





Another favorite is The Construction Alphabet Book by Jerry Pallotta and Rob Bolster (affiliate link). This book goes through the alphabet naming different construction vehicles, so you get letter recognition and you learn the names of some really cool machines...


And when it is time for a bedtime story, his favorite is Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site (affiliate link).  In this book, all the construction equipment have worked hard all day and are settling down for bed. I love the illustration of this book as well as the story...


There's nothing better than reading a great book!



I found these fun crafts to do to go along with the stories...

For this one, we just cut out shapes and he glued them on a sheet of construction paper to make a truck picture. It reinforced shapes for him and was fun and quick...

We had a blast with these crafts!
