The story takes place on a muddy country road. The little blue truck, the protagonist, drives all the way and warmly greets every animal friend passing by with a beep sound. Frogs, sheep, cows, piglets, chickens, ducks and horses, and a series of farm animals that children love to see and hear appear one by one. The originally quiet path became noisy immediately in their chirping.

“Bleep!” the blue pickup truck is so polite: it will greet toads, cattle, horses and other animals on the road. But the dumper is too arrogant. It not only ignores others, but also takes advantage of its big size to get ahead of others. As a result, it accidentally gets stuck in the mud. He shouted and shouted, but no one came to help him. At this time, the Little Blue Truck rushed into the mire… The friendly blue small truck and the dumper that nobody love formed a sharp contrast, making the children understand that friendship can make the relationship between people more harmonious. Be kind to others, and you will be more welcome and happy.

Finally, the sentence “Now I see a lot depends on a helping hand from a few good friends” shows the spirit of the book – now I understand that many things depend to a large extent on the help of good friends.
