Three R Thursday - William the Garbage Truck


Recently I received a copy of William the Garbage Truck to read and review. William The Garbage Truck and Crew is a colorful storybook series that teaches children how to “Go Green”. Perfect for ages three to eight, each book follows William and his friends as they clean up the fictional city of Jamestown, enjoy exciting adventures and learn important life lessons along the way.

At first a smoky white garbage truck, William learns about conservation, makes friends, learns lessons and eventually transforms to a green hybrid recycling truck committed to the fight against global warming.

As soon as the book arrived, my 3 year old son was intrigued. He loves anything with wheels and wanted to read it immediately. He loved learning about William. He really enjoyed the colorful pictures and is ready to learn more about William's friends. William has become part of our night time reading line-up. This series is a great way to introduce "going green" to your children. I think it would also be a great addition to any traditional or homeschooling classroom.

William the Garbage Truck will be available for purchase on Earth Day. Each book will be printed with eco-friendly materials and is 100% recyclable.

I'll check it out for the boys...have you heard about Laurie David's book? Davis is still too young for it, but it is great...
