Izzy the Ice Cream Truck likes to get dizzy. When he needs to get clean, he likes to go to a car wash and get fizzy. He gets busy as he whizzes by on the road selling ice cream.
Dizzy Izzy features an adventuresome ice cream truck in an early reader reminiscent of Dr. Seuss. A combination of humorous illustrations and playful prose make this book a great choice for a kindergartner just starting to read. This series will especially appeal to boys who are learning to read. Check out the Trucktown website for more books in this series and the Kid's Page for games and activities that will entertain your young truckers.
