Grandpa and the Truck Books 1 and 2
Tales of a Big-Rig Trucker
What kids learn
- Geography–from the unique perch of a cross-country trucker (in this way, kids learn other-than-GPS knowledge of our great country.)
- Historical events (like the Woodstock Music Festival) as seen by this trucker.
- Nature’s fury in the form of ice-slicked roads, blizzards, and hurricanes.
- Important life lessons like “Never blindly follow another,” “Math skills are necessary in ALL jobs,” “Girls can do anything boys can do.”
- The value in life of acquired skills and practical knowledge.
- The unique bond truckers enjoy–fostered by an often-solitary lifestyle.
