School Library Journal - 05/01/2018 PreS-Gr 2—Another book in Cuyler's "Little Truck" series, this story captures the duties of an ice cream truck as it delivers treats to the families around town. The anthropomorphized truck and its driver named Lou visits a diverse group of children in various locations around the community including the zoo, the park, the athletic fields, family celebrations, and the usual trip around the blocks of the neighborhood. Digital illustrations are bright and perfectly depict different places around a community. Readers will delight in hearing the different types of ice cream the truck carries (Vanilla in a cup, Berry Crunch, lemon ice, Cookie Munch) and will most likely relate it to their own personal ice cream preferences. Ice cream trucks are most synonymous with the melodious sounds that accompany their presence and this ice cream truck is shown going "Ding-a-ling, ding-a-ling," which will inspire children to talk about the sounds they are used to hearing when their truck comes around. VERDICT Recommended for general purchase to any picture book collection. A jovial seasonal selection that can quickly be read one-on-one while eliciting memories and planning for sunny days to come.—Kristen Todd-Wurm, Middle Country Public Library, NY - Copyright 2018 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
