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