Whoop WHOOSH whoop WHOOSH click clack BUMP
Bright and cheerful illustrations come together with a giggle-worthy variety of noises in this rhythmic tale of a garbage truck's day. The illustrations provide young children with a truckload of opportunities to practice counting 0-5 and to work on beginning inference skills. The story rolls to a gentle close, making it a perfect bedtime choice for little truck fans.
