"Little Blue Truck" - A Cute Children's Book

Jackson LOVES books. Which makes this momma so happy. I'm not much of a reader, I never have been, but I definitely want my children to enjoy reading.

I introduced books to Jackson with the hope that he would love them and it started out that he would barely sit long enough for me to get through the first page of a small board book. But recently, he brings me books and sits on my lap and lets me read him several board books at a time. He even fell asleep while I read to him a couple of times at nap time last week.

We've recently made reading a part of our bedtime routine, which helps to settle Jackson down and get him ready for bed.

He got a few short board books for Christmas, but now that he's really enjoying being read to, I wanted to find some board books that were a little longer. Saturday night at Target I searched the children's books in hopes of finding a cute book for us to read together. I found this one called "Little Blue Truck" and really liked it. Its a bit longer than any of the board books he currently had and it taught a lot of animal sounds (which we are currently working on with Jackson) and a good lesson in helping and being kind to others. Its a really cute book.

Here is a picture of the book (courtesy of this blog) and a link to it at

And here are just a few pictures of Jackson "reading" it. ☺

I plan to buy him several more books in the near future so we have a variety. Any suggestions??

Addison loves books! I think my favorite one around that age was Mr Brown Can Moo, Can You? And you can't go wrong with The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

Aww Jackson looks so cute reading his book! Rosen is just now getting to where she'll sit in my lap for a whole book. She's really into the lift-the-flap books by Karen Katz. Her favorites are "Where is Baby's Bellybutton?" "Peek-a-Baby," and "Toes, Ears, & Nose."
