Product description

Review

This book is intelligent and informative, with craft, rhythm, great art, and entertainment.
—School Library Journal (starred review)

Adorable multiethnic children are the drivers of these 16 trucks—from construction equipment to city trucks, rescue vehicles and a semi—easily standing in for readers, a point made very clear on the final spread. Varying rhyme schemes and poem lengths help keep readers’ attention. ... While there are many rhyming truck books out there, this stands out for being a collection of poems.
—Kirkus Reviews

Vestergaard (Potty Animals) offers 16 poetic tributes to big machines and trucks that should prove deeply satisfying to young connoisseurs and the grownups who read to them. ... Slonim’s pictures are rendered in bright acrylics (fire engine red and construction sign yellow prevail) and outlined in appropriately rugged charcoal; their burly cuddliness skews the pages toward younger imaginations.
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

[Youngsters] will be captivated by the lively artwork. ... Fun for reading aloud, especially one-on- one.
—Booklist

[T]hese playful verses sing the praises of sixteen trucks and the work they do. The lighthearted acrylic and charcoal illustrations enhance the poems’ humor and give their subjects loads of personality. There’s some refreshing gender equality, too, as six of the trucks are female.
—The Horn Book

Although Slonim’s perky accompanying cartoon illustrations play to a younger crowd, Vestergaard’s careful wordsmithery, precise terminology, and sly humor assure that the poems themselves will be appreciated by even more sophisticated listeners. ... Vestergaard changes up her rhyme and meter enough to keeps things interesting, and the scansion is reliable enough to coax even poetry-shy adults into trying a read aloud. Newly independent readers might want to step up to the mic, too, and share in the fun of a high-energy, clanging and banging poetry performance.
—Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

A charming set of rhymes... This is a wonderful addition to the bookshelf of any kid fascinated by big trucks. And who isn't?
—San Antonio Express-News

5.0 out of 5 stars Digger, dumper, dozer, you are a winner!
Reviewed in India on August 23, 2018
My 3 year old is fond of vehicles and this became his fast favorite. It had vehicles like cherry picker and tow truck; something that I rarely find in other books.

All trucks are described using peoms. Since we are Indians my son's mother tongue is not English. So even if I read it to him he doesn't enjoy it much.

On the other hand, my 5 year old daughter who is not into vehicles also surprisingly enjoys this book. Especially the peoms on the last page.
