I just read I Love Garbage Trucks by Patty Domas Fusco. I was attracted to the title because having raised a boy, I remember fondly his fascination with all things “TRUCKS.” As I read through the story, I thought that it was perfect for the same age group that loves trucks: ages 3-5. The vocabulary and sentence structure are simple enough for young minds to understand. The illustrations match the parts of the story that are on that page. I love that Ricky, the small boy, knows the garbageman by name and visa versa. The book ends perfectly with six pages of blackline illustrations from the story for children to color on their own. Since pre-school children benefit from practicing eye-hand coordination and form reviewing the story in a different form, it is a brilliant additional feature. I certainly hope that the book is available in stores as well as online since young ones will be attracted to the cover and will want to touch and handle the book, prompting parents to see its value.
