About the Book

There’s a new truck on the road and he goes fast—turbo fast; from New York Times bestselling author Jean Reagan comes a social-emotional picture book about slowing down and learning new skills.  

Turbo Truck has always stayed in his lane. That lane being the fast one. But when the only job left is one that calls for a delicate hand at the wheel, Turbo has the chance to prove to everyone—and himself—that he can travel at more than one speed.

As Turbo slows down, he discovers the satisfaction of a job well done (even one with no impressive accelerations) and the sights only visible from the slow lane. 

Critical Praise

"This cute story reassures kids that controlling impulses isn’t as hard as it might seem—plus it offers noticeable benefits and immediate rewards. Readers will relate to cute Turbo, who’s an expressive, vulnerable stand-in for little ones who often find it hard to slow down." — Kirkus Reviews

Whether or not they have an interest in trucks and cars, children will adore the pleasant, eager main character, Turbo, the special delivery truck who ­excels at moving at full speed. A cheerful book that could be the perfect gift for young truck lovers or a fitting addition to a lesson about transportation, goods and services, or opposite word pairings, as Turbo learns the importance of moving at a slow, steady speed on the roads. — School Library Journal
