Buster the Little Garbage Truck
by Marcia Berneger (Author) and Kevin Zimmer (Illustrator)
Booktalk:Buster is a sweet little garbage truck. He can’t wait to grow up to be a big truck, just like his father. Buster practices driving and lifting and beeping with his friend, Kitty. There’s one small problem. Loud noises frighten Buster. When his father takes him to the truck yard to meet the other vehicles, their air-horn blasts and roaring engines send Buster skidding away to hide. He wants to be big and brave, but how can he work with Daddy and his friends when their loud sounds scare him?
Later Buster heard Daddy whispering to Mommy. “He wouldn’t leave my side for hours. I didn’t know what to do.”
A tear slid down Buster’s grill. He wanted to be brave, but the trucks in the yard were so big and noisy.
I read my book at Yellow Book Road today. They loved honking their horns with Buster, my little garbage truck! pic.twitter.com/cb59Y0mMzy
