Food Trucks! by Mark Todd
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
This picture book is a timely one, as food trucks are so popular. Todd introduces readers to all different types of food trucks beginning with “Mornin’ Joe” a breakfast truck to “Cheddar Chuck” a grilled cheese truck to “Dutch” a pretzel truck and many more. Each truck has a descriptive poem accompanying it. The illustrations are colorful and detailed with interesting and themed trucks as well as appropriately themed menus. Each page also includes interesting facts and information relating to that particular food truck’s theme. While I googled some of these trucks, it appears that they are fictional, but based on actual food themed trucks out there. This was a fun read for both the kids as well as us parents. After reading this book you will probably want to go visit some food trucks!

We highly recommend watching the movie Chef, though not child-appropriate, it will make you want to open a food truck and travel the country! Check out our past review.
