Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Anne Rockwell has compiled a book about big earth-moving machines that will provide endless delight to young boys and girls. They will love to learn the names of each machine they encounter in their everyday lives. This book is full of simple text and graphics. Each machine is named and its job is described in both words and pictures. Clarity is all-important in a concept book like this one. Rockwell's intention is to acquaint little ones with as many big machines with big wheels as she possibly can, and she succeeds with flying colors. From the obvious big wheels, like tractors, to a compactor that handles garbage in the city dump, these varied machines will tickle the reader. Clear, simple pen-and-ink drawings with watercolor overlay make this book of big wheels take off. 2006 (orig. 1986), Walker, Ages 3 to 6.
—Joan Kindig, Ph.D.
