Little Blue Truck makes a friend / written by Alice Schertle ; illustrated in the style of Jill McElmurry by John Joseph.

Schertle, Alice, (author.). McElmurry, Jill, (illustrator.). Joseph, John, 1985- (illustrator.).


Beep! Beep! Have you heard the news? There is someone new on the farm! All the animals are curious and cautious about the newcomer--what will he be like? Does he neigh like a horse or oink like a pig? Does he have fur or feathers? Does he swim? Does he fly? Luckily, Blue knows just the thing to help his friends, old and new, feel at home! Making new friends can be scary, but being kind is easy. Little Blue's "Beep!" was loud and clear: We are very glad you're here!
