Did I enjoy this book:
 Uhm, all the yes! Duck in the Truck was one of the first books that we took out from the library when we started going when my son was just under 2 years old, and he loved it then and still enjoys it now over a year later! In fact, we have checked this book out so many times that he “helps” me read it because he has the whole thing memorized!

The story and the rhymes are fun and silly and my child loves to pretend to be “stuck in the muck” just like duck’s truck! The illustrations are entertaining and colorful and help us follow along as the animals work on solving the duck’s stuck in the yucky muck truck problem. I enjoy reading this fun little story too.

Would I recommend it: Yes, I would! This is a quick little story that my son asks me to read again and again, and I don’t even mind. It is fun and silly, and we both usually erupt into giggles before the end! Pick it up and enjoy your own little one’s giggles!
