Publishers Description

Trucks lift, dump, and carry things every day, everywhere. Did you know that...

.Flatbed trucks can carry other trucks, houses, and even a space shuttle

.Semitrailer cabs can have a bed behind the front seat so that drivers can pull over and rest on long trips.

.Road-train trucks pull multiple trailers at the same time, just like a locomotive pulls freight cars on a train.

More About Seymour Simon

Seymour Simon Seymour Simon, whom the NY Times called "the dean of [children’s science] writers," is the author of more than 250 highly acclaimed science books (many of which have been named Outstanding Science Trade Books for Children by the National Science Teachers Association). His free, educational children’s app, SCIENCE FUN TO GO, debuted in the Top 10 of all free children’s apps in the Amazon App store, and features in-app purchase of original Seymour Simon eBooks for iPhone/iTouch/iPad and Android devices.

Seymour Simon’s website is a unique online destination designed to engage children in reading, writing, and interacting with Seymour and his books, as well as to provide families and educators with a rich array of resources designed to enhance their children’s reading experience. In 2011, the website was named an Official Honoree in the Personal Blog/Website category in The 15th Annual Webby Awards, the only child-targeted website to win in the category.

The website provides free downloads of a wealth of materials for educators, homeschoolers and parents to use with his books, including 4-page Teacher Guides for all 28 of his Collins/Smithsonian photo essay books. The site also provides multiple resources for kids writing book reports or wanting to explore the online Science Dictionary. Classrooms and school librarians use the popular Seymour Science blog to stay up with science news, and to discuss and comment on current topics.

Seymour Simon’s books encourage children to enjoy the world around them through learning and discovery, and by making science fun. He has introduced tens of millions of children to a staggering array of subjects; one prominent science education specialist described Simon’s books as "extraordinary examples of expository prose." Simon taught science and creative writing in elementary and secondary schools and was chair of the science department at a junior high school in the New York City public school system before leaving to become a full-time writer. "I haven’t really given up teaching," he says, "and I suppose I never will, not as long as I keep writing and talking to kids around the country and the world."

Seymour Simon currently resides in Long Island, in the state of New York.

Jason & Trucks  Mar 5, 2002
The story I read about was about trucks. I practically love trucks myself, their one of my favorite vehicles besides old hotrods...
This story had all kinds of trucks which do different jobs such as the logging truck, it carries logs to places. I liked the big monster truck...
Trucks come in different sizes and shapes. They can do all kinds of jobs including farm work, help carry building materials, deliver mail for the postal service, and fire fighters use trucks to put out fires.
This book was as good book but it left out a truck, a pickup truck. This truck book was a good book other than the pickup truck they left out.
Not Simon's best, but good  Feb 13, 2001
I too am a children's librarian. I am a big fan of Seymour Simon's books - he always presents interesting information, clear prose, and beautiful pictures. His truck book, however, seems to suffer from the use of file photos as illustrations instead of any pictures taken just for the book. A few of his photos are not sufficiently illustrative of his text - like his photo of a tractor shows only half of a tractor in dim light. Still, there are plenty of young truck fans out there, and you could do lots worse than this concise book.
