This is the tale of a duck in a truck –
a truck that was stuck in some yucky brown muck.
A sheep in a jeep and a frog in a bush
saw the truck stuck and gave it a push.
But the truck stayed stuck!
What now, can you guess?
Could a goat in a boat
get them out of this mess?

The duck in the truck is a beautiful book written and illustrated by Jez Alborough. We’ve been reading it for the last couple of weeks and Amy loves the rhymes that tell the story of the duck whose truck gets stuck in the mud and its friends’ attempts of saving it. Will they succeed?

Colourful illustrations guide little readers through the book and an innocent sense of humour made Amy and me giggle when one animal after the other landed in the mud. All in all, the Duck In The Truck by Jez Alborough is a lovely book for toddlers and pre-schoolers.

We had great fun pointing out the different animals, spotting colours and imitating animal sounds and the detailed illustrations gave Amy lots to discover and talk about.

    I would resurrect Trapdoor and have yoghurts based on all the creepy creatures. The pot lid would be the Trapdoor… if you dare!
