Not much to go on here, but I’m trying to find a book that was for little ones.  It was about trucks - specifically tucks that a child would see and hear in their neighborhood.  Like the sounds of trucks when they were still in bed in the morning or those they might hear during the night...like fire emergency vehicles overnight, or a truck making a delivery to the local bakery early in the morning,  or cement trucks during the day.  Can’t recall all of the trucks or the details but remember the sense that these were the tucks of a child’s neighborhood.   

As I said,  it’s much to go on but hoping it rings a bell somewhere.
