Little Truck is out and about, following Big Truck down the road. Then Little Truck starts to go so fast that he overtakes Big Truck. Naturally Big Truck cautions Little Truck to be careful and not to go too fast!

Little Truck, with Big Truck following in his wake, comes to a hill and up he goes, but as the hill gets steeper, Little Truck starts to slow down. Thankfully Big Truck is happy to give Little Truck a gently push until they are both at the top of the hill.

Little Truck speeds up again and a tunnel lies ahead of him. It is dark in there and now Little Truck is perhaps feeling a little less sure of himself.

Little children love to have adventures. After all, exploring is fun and exciting; but what do you do when you encounter a problem? Thankfully for Little Truck, and lots of little boys and girls, they have grownups to watch over them. With their guardians not far away, little ones can safely explore the world around them.

Children are going to enjoy following Little Truck to see what happens next, and they will be glad that he has someone keeping an eye on him. Just in case he needs a helping hand.
