About The Book

Was that a flash of lightning? A rumble of thunder?

Better get ready--there's a new crew in town!

As Bulldozer piles up clouds and Tanker Truck hauls the rain, the whole Thunder Truck gang works together to build a tremendous storm.

Brimming with energy and fun, this cheerful bedtime story is perfect for snuggling, no matter the weather.

The Review

This book has to be one of the most perfect books that I have read for early readers that shows thunderstorms in a cool way that they would totally understand!

I only read a kindle version of this book and the pictures were truly outstanding in that version, I can only imagine what it might be like in a hardcover version! The whole concept of this story is how a thunderstorm is made but by various heavy equipment, perfect for those kids who loves trucks! The story was done in a way that makes thunderstorms cool and not scary at all and it even has a little guide in the end on how a storm is really formed for those who want to learn more!

Overall, this is a great story with really cool illustrations that is perfect for that early reader who loves trucks and weather!

Thank You to Cheryl Klein, Katy Beebe, & Mike Boldt for this read that put a smile on my face while reading this awesome book!

I voluntarily reviewed this complementary book from RockStar Book Tours!

I love books -- reading them, holding them, even smelling them! Growing up in the Midwest, my family would spend summers at our local public library. Later, I was lucky enough to study at the medieval University of Oxford, where there are so many books that you can catch their scent rising up from vents in the sidewalks.

I now teach medieval history at the University of Texas at Arlington, and I incorporate the history of books and "book making" into my classes whenever I can. As you might be able to tell from my books (there are more to come after Brother Hugo and the Bear!), I also love to share this history with younger readers, as well.
