When farmer Chuck gets ready to go to town, his barnyard friends gather around. Into the truck climb the duck Luck, dogs Nip and Tuck, the burro Buck, workhorse Huck, the chicken that goes “cluck,” Sue and Lou, and the goat Flo, too. Make room for another delightful Level 1 Green Light Reader from author-illustrator Peggy Perry Anderson.
When farmer Chuck gets ready to go to town, his barnyard pals gather round. Everyone want to ride along. But the duck Luck, Nip and Tuck, the burro Buck and work horse Huck, and six more critters may prove to be too much cargo for Chuck's Truck. Beginning readers will enjoy the bumps in the road in this colorful, newly-formatted Green Light Readers edition full of rhyme and wordplay.
"Filled with rhyming language, this story will be a boon for beginning readers who will easily identify the rhyming words . . One of the book's strongest features is the way the illustrations give visual clues to support the narrative while still adding to the humor of the plot. Anderson uses a crayon-resist technique to great effect, and the pictures are filled with dimension and texture. The bright colors are vibrant and energetic. This title will be a welcome addition to most collections, not only for its appeal to newly independent readers, but also for fun barnyard and vehicle storytimes." -- School Library Journal
"Both the pithy rhyming text and the bold, expressive animals are sure to tickle preschoolers' funny bones, while the gradually introduced, playfully reiterated words and rhymes also suit the cheery tale to beginning readers." --Horn Book
