They're big. They're bright. They're powerful.
Big wheels get the tough jobs done. Lifting, pushing, digging, dumping-they build the real world children live in and the imaginary worlds they create for themselves. Preschoolers will revel in the power that comes from knowing the name and function of each of these huge machines, and they will have fun picturing themselves riding atop each behemoth as they read about their favorite trucks again and again. With Anne Rockwell's colorful illustrations and simple text, this exciting book is sure to become a classic with another generation of young readers.

ANNE ROCKWELL says, "I love the bright, cheerful colors of enormous work vehicles and wanted to do a picture book that captured both their strength and gaiety." She has written many books for Walker & Company including Little Shark and Becoming Butterflies.From School Library Journal:
PreS A companion volume to Rockwell's previous fine basic transportation books. In her familiar and popular style of bright watercolors and crisp lines, Rockwell's cheerful illustrations for this book are "peopled" with pigs; Boats (1982) has bears; Trucks (1984) is filled with cats; Cars (1984) is set in a canine country; and Planes (1985, all Dutton) uses rabbits. Bulldozers, dump trucks, cranes and such are described in a very simple text, and the appeal to young children is heightened by the stylistic use of the first-person plural. This book, like the others, is an excellent example of how to present information to young patrons: it is accurate, appealing, colorful, brief and interesting. A sure success for the preschool group.Connie Tyrell Burns, Morrisson-Reeves Library, Richmond, Ind.
