This review is from: Tractor-Trailer Trucker: A Powerful Truck Book (Hardcover)
A Powerful Truck Book where we get to hook up the tractor to the trailer; load the cargo & inspect the rig. Before starting out there’s a lot to do: check under the hood for fluid levels, shock absorbers & frayed hoses & wiring. Check the tires, load the cargo & do your circle check. Phew! That took a lot of time & now it’s breakfast at the truck stop & then off on the road with all its sights & sounds, dreams & driving.
With bold, bright photos & simple, engaging language, Joyce Slayton Mitchell & photographer Steven Borns takes us through a tractor-trailer trucker’s day. They even provide us with a glossary & a page of trucker talk terms.

A grand learning & talking book – a must for every kid, young & old, who drools at the sight of tractor-trailers, juggernauts, behemoths! I loved this book!
