Among the things that young boys love are "trains, firetrucks, diggers and garbage trucks". While Thomas the Tank Engine and his friends fill a young boys need for trains, Bob the Builder and his gang supply diggers and many there are many items to read and share about fire trucks, up until now there has not been a garbage truck hero.
With a seven year old son recovering from having his tonsils and adenoids out earlier this week, it was with joy that I came across Kathleen Crawley's book "Colonel Trash Truck" being part of this months virtual book tour with the Pump Up Your Book Promotion team.
When the book arrived the pleasure in my sons eyes was plain to see, just turning seven the book was just right for him to read with first his mother, then me and finally his older sister. The illustrations by Manuel Conde just enhance the story, and keep the youngster wanting to turn the pages.
The likable, fun loving hero leads the reader through his mission to win the garbage war, cleaning up trash and recycling when he can. It is not only a good read but holds a moral that has your child joining him in his quest as one of the "Clean and green Team"
With the holidays just around the corner, this is a book that all children specially young boys will love
