From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 4-This book is full of color photographs of big, shiny trucks, all on the job. In comparing their size and weight to dinosaurs and elephants, the text also emphasizes the vehicles' power and strength. Pictures show these oversized transports hauling logs, moving a house, carrying and dumping heavy construction materials, taking children to school, and carrying gasoline from refineries to gas stations. Simon explains what a semitrailer truck is, and why the drum of a cement mixer rotates while the truck is moving. The exciting photographs, many of them close-ups, will captivate youngsters. Though the sentences are long and the vocabulary sophisticated in places, the visual appeal of this book is very high and the information is clear and equally engaging.
