Description

 

From Booklist

Six construction trucks gather at a sandy site, ready to start their work. The dozer shoves the sand aside, while the digger bites into the ground. The loader lifts rocks and crashes them (Ka-boom!) into the back of the dump truck, which zooms away. The big mixer chugs away, and the crane’s long arm swivels to move a beam. After close-up views of the individual trucks at work, a wider view shows the sandbox where five children are operating them. It’s not an entirely novel concept to older fans of truck books, but chances are it will surprise younger kids. A “Step 1” selection from the Step into Reading series, this simple story is written in rhyme, ending with “Job’s all done. / Play is, too. / Engines off now. / Good work, crew!” A good short book to keep in mind for toddlers who love trucks as well as truck lovers who are ready to read. Preschool-Grade 1. –Carolyn Phelan
