Truck Driver Tom by Monica Wellington
Book DescriptionTom drives a big rig. He gets an order and picks it up. As he drives across the country, past construction sites and on roads being repaired, he joins other vehicles, big and small. Wherever he goes?through towns and cities, on busy highways, over bridges and mountains?he sees all kinds of trucks that are also carrying important goods to people. In scenes both panoramic and detailed, Monica Wellington has painted over sixty different vehicles in her signature bright colors. In this addition to her nonfiction series for the very youngest about people and jobs, she invites readers?especially boys?for a ride on the open road.
