Little Blue Truck is a story about a friendly truck who greets anyone and everyone he meets. He has lots of friends, such as horses, chickens, and big green toads. When a big important dump truck gets stuck in the mud, no one cares about his cries for help. No one except a certain blue truck, that is. He comes to help the dump truck out of the mud, but then he gets stuck too! When the situation looks desperate, who should appear but Blue’s friends, ready to help their comrade. With all the animals working together, Blue and the dump are able to be pushed out of the mud.
What’s the Message?
I believe that the message of this book is that when you are friendly and kind to others, more people want to help and be around you. Blue always says hi and is always cheerful, while the dump truck plows through without so much as a “hello.” The animals were more willing to help Blue, because he was always willing to help them.
