by | Read by George Newbern

Children Ages 4-6 • 5 mins. • Unabridged • © 2015

With a powerful yet friendly voice, George Newbern exudes respect and pride in detailing the jobs of various trucks in the city. For example, he affects a distraught tone when a snowstorm arrives. But as the garbage truck takes on his secret, helpful mission, Newbern nearly bursts with pride. Given the book's final page--a simple illustration that obviously is not part of the narration--listeners should be sure to take a look at the print version to enjoy the surprise. The production includes a conversation with the author/illustrator in which he details his youth, his longtime interest in creating, his current artistic endeavors, and the pleasure he receives from interactions with his audience.
