Ride along to school with the #1 New York Times bestselling Little Blue Truck and meet Blue's new friend: a bright yellow school bus. Beep-beep!

Little Blue Truck and his good friend Toad are excited to meet a bright yellow school bus on the road. They see all the little animals lined up in the school bus’s many windows, and Blue wishes he could be a school bus too. What a fun job—but much too big for a little pickup like Blue. Or is it? When somebody misses the bus, it’s up to Blue to get his friend to school on time. Beep! Beep! Vroom!

Also enjoy Blue’s bedtime ride in Good Night, Little Blue Truck and his trip to the city in Little Blue Truck Leads the Way!

Instant #1 New York Times Bestseller! "Little Blue is a brave, helpful, and hopeful character young readers will root for. Adults will feel a rush of nostalgia and delight in sharing this story with children as the animated vehicles and animals in innocent, colorful countryside scenes evoke wholesome character traits and values of growth, grit, and self-acceptance.... A terrific choice for the preschool crowd."—Kirkus "A charming tale of an endearing little truck on a mission. Perfect for story times."—School Library Journal
