Why I Love This Book
In an interview with author, Alice Schertle, she stated that, "reading with my children was something that I did with great pleasure from the time she brought them home." She never thought she'd be writing children's books, but she always knew that she'd be a writer. Additionally, like myself, she was an elementary school teacher.
While she's written over 40 picture and poetry books, she is most known for her The Little Blue Truck series. However, those books didn't come along until well after her more serious nonfiction children's books and poetry.
The original illustrator of the series, Jill McElway passed away in 2017 and there was a brief gap in the series. In 2019, Schertle wrote another "Little Blue Truck" book, Goodnight Little Blue Truck, and the publishers hired artist John Joseph to create the illustrations in the original style of The Little Blue Truck.
