Food trucks have become an ingrained part of our culture that it seems only natural that we celebrate them in children's books the way we have celebrated fire trucks or construction vehicles in children's literature for years.
This story playfully imagines food trucks with fun themes like a salad truck called "Mr. Cobb" or a falafel truck named "The Pharaoh's Tummy" and pairs them with short poem descriptions of each truck's menu as well as trivia fun facts about the food each serves. For example, did you know that a group of chefs in Jordan created the largest falafel ever weighing in at 155 pounds. It's true! My two year old enjoyed looking at the pictures and talking about the food they serve, and my eight year old really got interested in the food facts. By the end of it, we were getting out the crayons and paper to design our own takes on the food truck!
