Trucker Kid

by Carol Gordon Ekster

TRUCKER KID, illustrated by Russ Cox, published by Capstone Editions, came out Jan. 1, 2023. It is a story about Athena, who is proud of her truck-driving father but misunderstood by her classmates for her love of all things trucking. In addition to highlighting an often overlooked career, this book shows how attitudes can be changed through education. Athena explains about trucking and they listen and understand, rather than making fun of her. At the end of the story is a list of some effects of what would happen within just a few days if trucks stopped service and an author’s note explaining the inspiration for this story.
