From author Herb Padwick comes a delightful and lesson-filled picture book that will surely capture children’s hearts and inspire them about who they are. Roland The U.S. Postal Service Truck teaches readers the value of who they are and the importance of what they do.

An endearing picture book, it follows Roland The U.S. Postal Service Truck, a very special truck tasked to deliver mails to all the people in his town. On his daily route, he sees the freeway nearby filled with big trucks that go really fast. It makes him jealous and he wants to just one day go out on that freeway and go really fast. One day, his wish comes true when his driver takes him into the freeway. Suddenly, a big truck comes by and shakes him, his tires wiggle and his doors shake—his little heart races. The trucks are really faster than him, he can’t keep up and he is really scared. Will he be able to get out of the freeway and successfully deliver the mails in the neighbourhood?

Roland The U.S. Postal Service Truck learns an important lesson in his experience that readers will find very useful and inspiring. Through this book, they will become proud of who they are and what they are doing—without wanting to be someone else.

This book will be featured at the New York Library Association Book Exhibit in Saratoga Springs, NY on November 2-5, 2011. For more information on this book, interested parties may log on to
