"Great to read on a stormy day. Fans of Little Blue Truck and new readers alike will be charmed by this picture book adventure."--School Library Journal "Little Blue Truck has been chugging along since 2008, but there seems to be plenty of gas left in the tank. A sweet reminder that it's easy to weather a storm with the company and kindness of friends."--Kirkus "It's a satisfying blend of huddling together in a crisis, soothing fears, and calming down -- great as a read-aloud and a bedtime book."--Common Sense Media
