Description

Dumpty the Dump Truck loves to work for his driver Joe. Nothing makes him happier than to carry a big load of rocks and dump it into a great big pile. But one day when Joe has a huge job to do, Dumpty learns that he isn’t the biggest, fastest, strongest, or the newest Dump Truck in town. This makes Dumpty sad. Find out what happens when Dumpty decides to not compare himself to others, but to work hard to get his job done. Children will learn a valuable lesson about working hard, and not comparing themselves with others. A positive ending adds interest to this adorable story and encourages a lifelong love for reading.
