Summary

Summary

Axel is a little truck with great big wheels. Axel loves to explore, have fun, go fast, and get dirty. The Axel books are ideal for children just learning to read, and feature fun art and an easy-to-read text that builds vocabulary, phonics skills, and the joy of reading.

Rocky Road is the second book about Axel, the little truck with great big wheels. Axel heads to the mountains and races, bumps, and speeds up and down rocky roads. He even races a mountain goat or two! When he gets muddy, Axel heads to the car wash before heading home. The Axel books offer a fast-paced and fun first reading experience for emergent readers and build comprehension and phonics skills.

School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 1-Axel, a monster truck, takes center stage in this beginning reader. There are plenty of vrooms, zooms, bumps, and bangs as he ploughs through town, flies off mountain trails, collects rocks sailing through the air and delivers them to a dump, and fills up with gas before returning home. Cheerful cartoons capture the action throughout. Similar in spirit to "Jon Scieszka's Trucktown" series (S & S), these books will appeal to the same readership-newly independent readers who can't get enough of humanlike vehicles out for adventure. As an added bonus, back matter features an ample array of labeled truck parts and garage tools.-Gloria Koster, West School, New Canaan, CT (c) Copyright 2013.
