Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3–In this rollicking Fourth of July story, Grandma ends up driving the garbage truck because all three of her sons are down with the flu. The intrepid woman suits up and decides to pick up the trash according to schedule so that things are spic and span for the holiday celebration. Along with her young grandson Billy, she inadvertently picks up garlands of roses, a clothesline strung with apparel, and an American flag as she navigates the large truck through the narrow streets. When she steers the vehicle onto the parade route, she toots the horn and waves to the crowd, earning a ribbon for the Most Creative Float. The bright and festive watercolors enhance this lighthearted tale that's perfect for reading aloud.–Alexa Sandmann, Kent State University, OH

I ordered this book for my son because of his love for garbage trucks. The story is adorable, attention captivating and the illustrations are great too. When Grammy came to visit, we read the story to her and she thoroughly enjoyed it too. I recommend this book for boys and girls and those who are especially interested in garbage, garbage trucks and recycling. Not to worry, my daughter isn't big on trucks but she really likes this book too.

Grandma isn't the best garbage truck driver in the world, but she is well intentioned in this watercolor illustrated book. The illustrations are very engaging, with lots to look at. And the story is so silly. I read this with my 2 and a half year old son and he loved it. We made comparisons with his own grandma and being a huge fan of garbage trucks, this was a huge hit with my son in general.

In Grandma Drove The Garbage Truck by Katie Clark, Grannie isn't a rocking-chair woman: she is sick of all the trash piled up in town and she decides to do something about it before the big Fourth of July parade. Lovely drawings by Amy Huntington mark a lively story line in which Grannie takes charge when a sick garbage man threatens her favorite day.

My son is 3 and loves garbage trucks so I thought it would be funny for him to read about a Grandma driving a garbage truck. The story isn't very interesting and not that humorous...and he really doesn't understand the concept of it so he doesn't ask us to read it to him. Maybe a 4 or 5 year old would like it? The illustrations are really nice. I probably should have checked it out at the library first before buying it.

I bought this book for my 4 year old grandson for his birthday. He loves all things trash! This is a cute story about grandma stepping in to save the day and drive the trash truck. Illustrations are great, the story is entertaining, and if your little one loves garbage trucks, they will enjoy this book. Easy read for a bed time story.

The book deals with a business owned by grandma, and the sons drive the garbage trucks. However, both sons called in sick on the same day so grandma does what she has to do, runs the route herself. In the process, she picks up enough extra items on her garbage truck from her route, rose bushes, clothes line, etc. that she wins the parade she accidentally enters. A fun book for 2-3 yr. old

This is a great book to read to the little ones as a good night story. It's such an easy story to read, your little guys will begin to remember some of the words and they can "read" right along with you. It's a funny story, too! Easy to create different voices for each of the characters.
Would definitely recommend to Grandparents.
