Why was Colonel Trash Truck written?

There are few products that teach kids the importance of helping to save the planet and even less that speak to them in a way that gets their attention. Products must appeal to kids so that they ask for them by name and imaginary humorous characters are the best way to make that happen. Colonel Trash Truck, written for ages 3 to 6, will appeal to children with its fun rhymes and vibrant illustrations.

Why is Colonel Trash Truck different?

Kids love garbage trucks, and there is no better way to teach them to respect the environment than to introduce them to Colonel Trash Truck: a likeable, fun-loving hero who is extremely focused on his mission to win the garbage war. He sees the world and nature as a beautiful gift that we all need to appreciate and protect. Colonel Trash Truck believes cleaning up trash and recycling is something we all must do and he wants nothing more than to have kids join him in his quest.
