Product description


Sutton's rhythmic text, full of onomatopoeia and muscular action words, captures the excitement and energy of big trucks hard at work and powerful machinery bashing concrete and metal. Lovelock's meticulous illustrations, rendered in pigmented ink, give the job site a suitably dusty patina and put the equipment and vehicles center stage, where young fans will want them...This is all about as good as it gets for truck-obsessed preschoolers.
--The Horn Book (starred review)

The text is rife with onomatopoeic phrases and action verbs, making it great for reading aloud and building vocabulary. Lovelock's pigmented ink illustrations capture details about the machines-from treads to gears-in a style that is graphic and yet painterly. The geometric nature of the construction equipment offers another avenue for engaging children with the book.
--School Library Journal (starred review)

Smashing good fun for preschoolers of both genders.
--Kirkus Reviews

Reviewed in the United States on August 10, 2022
My sons’ Spanish Immersion daycare asked for Spanish books, so I got this board book for toddlers who could enjoy and not destroy. It’s a great size- not small at all and the words are just big enough for them to help them start remembering some sight words! I think the teachers will enjoy reading this to them!
