Top 10 Truck Books for Kids
Little Blue Truck Leads the Wayby Alice Schertle
This is a favorite around here! The Little Blue Truck series is so cute. This one is about working together and pushing egos aside to get more done.
I Stink! by Kate and Jim McMullan
If your kids are fans of the online show, Stinky and Dirty, they’ll love the books that inspired the show! I Stink is about a garbage truck that loves to be stinky.
Did you watch The Busy World of Richard Scarry as a kid? I was so excited when I saw this old book and could introduce some of my favorite characters. It has hundreds of real and funny trucks – from fire trucks to a silly pickle truck!

If you read before bed, this one is perfect! Diggers have surprisingly similar bedtime routines to little boys and girls.
Old MacDonald Had a Truck by Steve Goetz
My favorite truck book by far. This one takes a
Mighty, Mighty Construction Site by Sherri Duskey Rinker
The adorable companion book to Good Night, Good Night Construction
Pete the Cat: Construction Destruction by James Dean
Ryan’s teacher loves the series and they read it often. I went out and grabbed this construction themed one because of course and it’s a staple around here.
Dig! by Andrea Zimmerman and David Clemesha
Honestly, this is one of my favorites mostly because it’s not one of those crazy popular ones. We read it 2-3 times a day for months. Join Mr. Rally and his dog as they work through their day as they, “dig up dirt, dig up clay!” all day long!
Grandma Drove the Garbage Truck by Katie Clark
Grandma owns a garbage company and her 3 sons usually drive the trucks. Until they all get sick and Grandma needs to step in! Both of my boys think this truck book for kids is absolutely hilarious so we read it often!
Smash! Mash! Crash! There Goes the Trash! by Barbara Odanaka
Garbage day is a BIG DEAL at my house. This book goes through the excitement of watching the garbage truck come each week and crush your trash!
