Foreign Customer Review / 国外客户评价:
|5 stars,This book, a 1981 Caldecott Honor book, is a nearly wordless set of pictures that follow a red tractor-trailer truck across country as it makes a delivery. From the black of the end papers, Crews drops the reader immediately into the action as the story begins on the title page with the truck being loaded with colorful boxes of tricycles. From there, the truck begins its journey from New York through the Lincoln tunnel, passing truck stops and gas stations and enduring rain and traffic jams, until it crosses the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco where it unloads its cargo. The illustrations have an intense graphic quality, with sharp geometric shapes, heavy dark lines, and intense blocks of color. The style evokes the abstract shapes of road signs and intense colors of roadside attractions. The illustrations, printed on glossy paper, stretch across both pages and bleed to the edge of the page, drawing the reader further in to explore the pages. Children learning to read will be able to recognize many words in the road signs and on trucks and vans. Non-readers will enjoy spotting the red truck on each new page. The embedded storyline encourages children to follow a sequence of steps in a larger process, while the absence of words encourages children to elaborate on the action, making up their own stories to accompany the images.
