Schertle and the late McElmurry's lightly anthropomorphic blue truck returns for a joyful springtime lift-the-flap outing. As the Little Blue Truck travels through an idyllic farm landscape, readers can look beneath large flaps to discover newborn animals underneath ("Who's out swimming in a line?/ Yoo-hoo, Duck and ducklings nine!"). The cheerful scenes offer plenty of opportunities for animal identification and counting (Sheep has just given birth to twins, 10 piglets share a muddy sty with Mama Pig), and a closing scene brings together all the little ones for a festive finale that sees them decked out in floral garlands. Up to age 3. (Jan.)Copyright 2017 Publishers Weekly.
