About the Book

Trucks lift, dump, and carry things every day, everywhere. In the same vein as his bestselling animal, physiological, and astronomy photo essays, award-winning author Simon explores and explains the child-friendly subjects of trucks. This nonfiction picture book is an excellent choice to share during homeschooling, in particular for children ages 6 to 8. It’s a fun way to learn to read and as a supplement for activity books for children.

Did you know that...

.Some trucks can weigh as much as ten elephants put together.

.Flatbed trucks can carry other trucks, houses, and even a space shuttle!

.Semitrailer cabs can have a bed behind the front seat so that drivers can pull over and rest on long trips.

.Road-train trucks pull multiple trailers at the same time, just like a locomotive pulls freight cars on a train.

Seymour Simon knows how to explain science to kids and make it fun. He was a teacher for more than twenty years, has written more than 250 books, and has won multiple awards.

This book includes an author's note, glossary, and index and supports the Common Core Learning Standards, Next Generation Science Standards, and the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) standards.
