Bedtime Story: Welcome to Trucktown by Jon Scieszka

Synopsis: "Jack Truck and his best friend Dump Truck Dan are spending the day doing their favorite thing... Smashing and Crashing throughout the whole town! Along the way the meet up with their friends and give us a rollicking tour! But when a mysterious shadow falls and a strange voice calls, is the duo in trouble? Or has a new friend come to town to join in all the smashing fun."

My Review: Nothing like teaching your kids to make a huge mess and wreck stuff with no punishments. Jack & Dan just go about wrecking things and making everyone's day harder and at the end are rewarded by giving them a job of wrecking something else. I didn't really like that message in this story. Munchkin didn't seem to like it much either, the illustrations were too busy for him to really enjoy the fact that it was a book about big trucks, one of his favorite things.
My Rating: I was really unimpressed with the message this book sends little kids but Munchkin really enjoyed the illustrations. We give it a rating of One Paw and a Stump Wag.
Good Night! Sweet Dreams!
