Best boy book ever! Young boys will love watching and hearing about the garbage truck's morning rounds (garbage truck tells the story!) What is really neat is that towards the middle of the book, the garbage truck recites trash thrown into it's hopper in alphabetical order! Lots of fun onomatopeias! Very bold illustrations. Garbage truck is a real hoot! If you have a child who loves to see the garbage trucks going down the street- this book is for him or her!

My daughter has loved this book since she was two. She still asks for it now at four. We often quote it, "Beep, beep, beep, hey! Beep, beep, out of my way!"

I personally didn't like it when I first read it but my son loved it. Good for boys and to learn the alphabet.

Summary

Add a Summary

PreS-Gr 2-An enthusiastic garbage truck describes the hearty joys of its daily rounds. The personified vehicle, with windows as eyes and a grille mouth, is appropriately unapologetic for the noises and smells that come with the territory. After filling up with trash ("Whoa, those bags are way compacted"), it gives a loud burp, followed by an "alphabet soup" list of items it digests, including "Dirty diapers," "Puppy poo," and "Ugly underpants." Varied perspectives; the creative use of light; and a palette of grays, blues, greens, and yellow visually capture the rewards of garbage collecting in an appealingly gross package. The text appears in letters of assorted size, color, and boldness that aptly fit the lively directness of the narrative. The truck's brash good humor shows in its toothy grin and expressive eyes, but the human qualities do not detract from its obvious truckish essence. When it proudly admits that it stinks ("Whooooo-whee! Do I ever!"), the truck asks readers where they would be without it. The answer appears on the following spread with a garbage-covered city. The simple, but distinctive voice of the narrating vehicle makes this a fun and funny read-aloud, especially for young truck enthusiasts.-Steven Engelfried, Beaverton City Library, OR (c) Copyright 2010.
