There are many different kinds of trucks to drive. You can dig up dirt with a power shovel, lift steel beams with a giant crane, flatten tar with a steamroller, and push away snow with a snowplow. Preschoolers will love watching the little boy and girl in the story as they sit in the driver's seat of twelve great machines that "rumble and tumble" and go "clinka-vroom vroom.

Praise for I'm a Truck Driver:
"Truck fans will love the anthropomorphized trucks, each with its own clever face and personality. The amusing antics of the dog and cat, as well as their rather bad luck, provide comic relief..This is this is sure to come as a breath of fresh air to adults accustomed to the usual construction-truck fare."--Kirkus
"This is a wonderful picture book about trucks, from power shovels to street sweepers and more... With expressive faces on the trucks, the pictures will draw young audiences into the story, reminding them of Jon Scieszka’s Truck Town."-- School Library Journal
"Chunky, rounded shapes (fans of Disney's Cars will recognize the style immediately), simple but accurate detailing, plenty of onomatopoeia, and just enough anthropomorphism to make it clear that these trucks revel in collaborating with humans” -- Publisher's Weekly
