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.
