Title: Dump Truck Day
Author: Cari Meister
Publisher: Capstone Press
Dump Truck Day is about a little boy named Jacob who gets to spend the day with his uncle in a dump truck. The neat thing about the book though is that it is a graphic novel for K-2. I have never read any kind of graphic novel before, so I do not know how this compares to adult graphic novels. It is almost like a hard covered comic book, and it was pretty cool. The pages are filled with colorful illustrations that any youngster into trucks would love.
At the end of the book some discussion questions are listed as well as some writing prompts. I like this as it makes the book more interactive for the child. One of the writing prompts is to draw a truck you like since the book is about trucks, or to draw the map of the pit mine and the surrounding area based on the story. It makes them actually think about the book and not just put it down and start on the next one.
This book is one in a series that includes these books:
