When the city is hit by a colossal snowstorm, only one superhero can save the day: SUPERTRUCK! But who is this mysterious hero, and why does he disappear once his job is done?
WATCH and LISTEN to Stephen Savage read his book Supertruck for KidLitTV:
ACTION RHYME: “Windshield Wiper”
I’m a windshield wiper (bend arm at elbow and hold fingers up)
This is how I go (swing arm back and forth)
Back and forth, back and forth (continue motion)
In the rain and snow
WATCH and LISTEN to Brightly Storytime’s Flip-Along Storytime Book I’m a Truck by Dennis Shealy, illustrated by Bob Staake:
ACTION SONG: “The Wheels on the Truck”
The wheels on the truck go round and round (roll hands)
Round and round, round and round
The wheels on the bus go round and round
All through the town.
The shovel on the truck goes dig dig dig
The bucket on the truck goes dump dump dump
The horn on the truck goes honk honk honk
*Asking the kids what else trucks do makes for great interaction and some funny answers!
