Each truck and big machine in these enticing rhyming poems is different -- and little readers are invited to find a vehicle that's like them.

Sixteen boisterous, rhyming poems -- each one highlighting the job and personality of a different vehicle, from a backhoe to an ambulance to a snowplow -- invite young children to meet their favorite trucks face-to-face. Cheerful illustrations show each one in action, digging (or dozing, or dumping) away. Engaging visual details like an anxious turtle crossing the street just ahead of a steamroller are sure to keep preschoolers poring over the pages as they consider the question, "Trucks as far as eyes can see. . . . Which truck would you like to be?"

This book is a huge hit with any preschooler obsessed with trucks and diggers and other construction equipment (as so many are). The colourful drawings and well-written rhymes makes it not too unpleasant for the adults asked to read it again and AGAIN!

My preschooler loved this book so much that we purchased our own copy.

Watch these mighty machines as they plow, excavate, and clean up the city. Colorful cartoon illustrations feature trucks of both genders.
