Stop That Garbage Truck!

Stop That Garbage Truck!

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Early in the morning, a shy African-American boy eagerly anticipates the deep, low thundering that heralds the arrival of the garbage truck. Watching the sanitation workers do their job fascinates Henry, and he feels a special rapport with the friendly worker who always greets him by tossing his cap high into the air. On this particular day, however, Henry's father has forgotten to put the trash out, and while his mother races off to get the can, Henry overcomes his bashfulness and asks the driver to wait. The subtle drama of the tale is appealing, and Henry, with his tongue-tied enthusiasm, is a charming protagonist. Children are sure to enjoy the suspense and happy resolution.-Anna DeWind, Milwaukee Public Library
