In Garbage Trucks, emergent readers will learn about different types of garbage trucks. Vibrant, full-color photos and carefully leveled text will engage early readers as they discover how these trucks collect trash.

A labeled diagram helps readers identify different parts of a garbage truck, while a picture glossary reinforces new vocabulary. Children can learn more about garbage trucks online using our safe search engine that provides relevant, age-appropriate websites. Garbage Trucks also features reading tips for teachers and parents, a table of contents, and an index.

Library Media Connection (Carrie Randall)

These books incorporate brightly-colored page layouts, numerous photographs, separated text boxes, and photo labels to help engage and encourage young readers. Each book shows various ways the title machine works in a community. Each spread has very sparse text. Vocabulary is repetitive and approachable for beginning readers. Every book includes a “Parts of” the machine section which includes a photograph and colorful, descriptive labels. Also included in each title is a picture glossary and a “To Learn More” section that provides one website and a search term, helping early learners navigate the Internet quickly and safely. This series is recommended for primary nonfiction collections and for collections needing more basic titles.
