There are so many positive messages in this story. As the crew of trucks works together it teaches teamwork and that everyone is important. The flatbed, skid steer, and loader are all girl trucks- trucks aren’t just for boys! Maybe most importantly, the story of demolition tells that everything destroyed will be sorted, saved, and used again.

This picture book biography of Joe Biden details the determination, kindness, and leadership that grows within him.
