At a yard sale with his mom, among the toys for sale, Chuck spots a fire truck. It only costs a buck—what luck! Mom buys Chuck the truck, and he loves everything about it. At home, he plays with it nonstop: in the sandbox, the yard, and the mud. But after bath time, once Chuck is squeaky clean, his fire truck is nowhere to be seen!
Dumbstruck, Chuck hunts all over the house. Where is his truck?! Was it sucked up into the vacuum, now stuck? Finally, Chuck and his truck are reunited, just in time for bed.
Told not in verse but with plenty of fun rhyme and repetition, this story’s bright, cartoon-like art conveys Chuck’s full range of emotions. With humor and warmth, it’s a lovable read-aloud that captures a child’s joy for their favorite toy.
A Fire Truck for Chuck is a wonderfully illustrated read. Filled with a delightful storyline and a valuable lesson! With vivid and compelling art, we are swept away into the small yet imaginative world of Chuck. Where we learn the value of things and how to control our attachment to them. Readers will enjoy this charming book of rhymes.
