Buster the Little Garbage Truck by Marcia Berneger, Kevin Zimmer

Buster is a sweet little garbage truck. He can't wait to grow up to be a big truck, just like his father. Buster practices driving and lifting and beeping with his friend, Kitty. There's one small problem. Loud noises frighten Buster. When his father takes him to the truck yard to meet the other vehicles, their air-horn blasts and roaring engines send Buster skidding away to hide. He wants to be big and brave, but how can he work with Daddy and his friends when their loud sounds scare him? Buster feels terrible. When Kitty gets into trouble, little Buster musters up his courage to save her.

Imagine an adorable little garbage truck who can’t wait to grow up to be a big truck like his dad. With his friend Kitty by his side, he diligently practices his driving, lifting, and beeping. But when dad introduces him to the other trucks, their roaring engines and horn blasts send him skidding to his dad’s side. Buster has a problem: he’s frightened by loud noises, and he feels terrible about it. How can he possibly work with his dad and the other trucks? In a surprise twist involving his friend Kitty, this special story answers that question. The colorful and vibrant illustrations are filled with distinctive and expressive trucks that young children will love. This picture book is a fun-filled read with a heart-felt message: Be brave. Honk your horn!

I purchased this book because it was about a garbage truck, which my son LOVES!!! I was pleasantly surprised to find that the book is so much more than a garbage truck book. Buster the Little Garbage Truck must overcome his fear of loud noises to save his friend from danger. A great lesson in triumphing fears! The illustrations are adorable and so expressive. We’re hoping for a sequel!!!

I am a kindergarten teacher and my students LOVED this book. We did a week long study and the class loved the characters. Buster, of course, if their favorite! I think this book is a great book, well written and beautifully illustrated! I hope to see more Buster books.

Combine a child's fascination for the magical world of vehicles with the theme of self-empowerment, a witty sense of humor, and adorable illustrations, and you have a formula for an endearing modern classic.  BUSTER, THE LITTLE GARBAGE TRUCK takes both young and old readers on a journey from trouble to triumph in this tale of a young garbage truck overcoming his fear.  While the story revolves around a cast of nonhuman characters, it is a very human drama.  Children will love the characters and the humor, while adults will enjoy the message and the wit.  BUSTER, THE LITTLE GARBAGE TRUCK is a story both parents and children will love to read together.
