We have big trucks, little trucks and everything in between but we only have one Berty Button with his beautiful coloured jelly beans!!
Berty Button Gets a Team is the first adventure learning story book in a series of eight. We meet Berty Button for the first time as he deals with the dilemma of having to be in several places at the same time. Quarters and Mini Bert are engaged to be part of the Berty Button team who deliver around Perth whilst Berty Button goes to Cairns. Subsequent stories allow the reader to follow the adventures of Berty Button, Quarters and Mini Bert as they go about their daily challenges in trucking life.
The Berty Button Kids adventure learning book series is designed for children and adults to engage with each other as mum, dad or caregiver read the stories together. Later, when the children can read alone, this book series embodies literacy and numeracy qualities that engage the child in learning through the craft of story telling and the world of literature. Berty Button Kids is not your set and forget children’s product where you set up your child to be busy so that you can get on with some other task. It requires for the adult to engage with the child and cement the skill of engaging and listening through the wonderful world of story telling. Value based learning is inherent to the stories.
Based on real life trucking adventures of a small truck fleet, the stories bring together a wonderful blend of reality and fantasy - jelly beans and trucks together, yum – yum!
