2.0 out of 5 stars Decapitated cow head!
By sgo73 on December 8, 2020
We love Little Blue Truck so we were excited to get this latest version. But for some reason, the art on the final fold-out page has two cow heads: one attached to the cow, and the other floating in space (see pic)! My five-year-old daughter spotted it right away, so perhaps the publisher should hire her to do their proof-reading from now on.

2.0 out of 5 stars Floating cow head makes for interesting read.
By Ashley on December 8, 2020
We love the Little Blue Truck books - but this one should have been reviewed a little closer to finish the cow drawing on the fold-out page. When we pre-ordered it in May 2020, we were under the impression that it would be released on our son's first birthday - making it really special. Instead, it was released during the dumpster fire that is 2020. With a decapitated, floating cow head. Yay. Two stars. Would not recommend.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bodyless cow, worrisome lesson, no toad, and eery setting
By Hails on January 29, 2021
We love the Little Blue Truck books, as most families do, but this error is disappointing. One person in the reviews claims that there is a body on this cow's head, but there simply isn't. "Get your eyes checked," that reviewer states. Um, YOU are the one who needs to do that. The "darker shade" to which that person refers is just shading on the wall--definitely not the cow's body. More proof of the fact that this is an error is that, if you look to the right on that flap, the cow WITH its body is seen behind the duck. There is only one cow mentioned in this book--not two. The illustrator clearly intended one placement for the cow, forgot, moved on with another plan, and forgot to edit out the original. And somehow, the editors missed this... My three year old was like, "Why is there no body on this cow's head?" It makes me feel as if these books (or at least this one) are rush- written, illustrated, and printed for the quick money. A minimal amount of concern for quality would have caught this error. It definitely lessens my respect for this collection. Also, as much as I enjoy the art style, the pink sky (an attempt to make it feel Valentine's Day-ish) just makes it feel eery--like there's a wildfire going on somewhere in Little Blue Truck's world, or like it's that point in the evening during which you should seek shelter from predators. The story line is also a bit annoying in that Little Blue Truck is sad about not receiving any cards/gifts after he gave everyone else cards. I teach my kids to give without expectation of gifts in return. Wishing for gifts from anyone is unhealthy, in my opinion. It's the friendship and happiness that that friendship brings that should be all that matters. One last thing: no toad! I hadn't even noticed, but my three year old asked, "Why isn't toad with Little Blue Truck this time?" And I just had to say that the writer decided not to include him this time... I'm giving it three stars because we still enjoy reading these seasonal books, but I really hope that the writers, illustraters, and publishers will recognize and avoid this kind of error in the future.

4.0 out of 5 stars No love for toad but at least there's a floating head....
By Bridgette Califf on January 9, 2021
My son loves the Little Blue Truck books and this one is no exception. I am slightly disappointed that toad didn't get a Valentine. I mean, he's pictured with one on the cover but didn't get one in the book. Obviously not a big deal, but he has generally been there for Blue. The floating head on the pull-out page is questionable, if not entertaining. My son is too young to know the difference but I find it incredibly distracting. Overall, cute book, I'm glad we have it but it's probably my least favorite of the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Feel book with lift a flap
By Karen J on December 15, 2020
My kids (1&3 yo) loves little blue truck. We just received this book yesterday and my kids are excited to read it. My son has been reading this over and over again since we've got it. It's a feel book with 1 whole page of lift a flap at the end.
