Don Carter is the author and illustrator of Get to Work Trucks! . He lives near Hartford, Connecticut.
PreS-Gr. 2. Carter tracks a package on its journey through the postal system in this instructive book for preschoolers captivated by planes, trains, and automobiles. On Monday, a boy wraps up a box and takes it to the post office, where it's put into a mail truck. On Tuesday, a female forklift operator loads the box onto a boat: "Lift it. / Balance it. / Don't drop it!" By Thursday the package is flying, and by Friday it's on a train: "Choo-choo it." Saturday is the delivery date; Sunday the boy's friend opens his gift--a toy mail truck! A blue X on the box allows children to locate it in each illustration, even peeking out of the airplane window. Carter creates his bold, textured, three-dimensional paintings with foam board, a drywall compound, and acrylic paint. Kids who may not have contemplated the multistep mailing process will gain new perspectives, especially since this concerns something dear to any child's heart--the arrival of a birthday present.
