Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Light follows Trucks Go and Trains Go with a salute to construction vehicles and the gloriously raucous noises they make. Case in point: “The jackhammer goes, grrrakka kkakkakkakkakkakkakkakkakkakk...” The book’s extra-wide trim size gives the vehicles plenty of room to do their excavating; a front loader chugs along, a bulldozer rumbles and scrunches as it mounds dirt into a pile, and a forklift beeps away as it extends on a vertically oriented spread. Light’s vibrant palette and loose watercolors hum with energy, and readers will be all too happy to growl, crunch, and rumble along with their favorite heavy-duty vehicles. Up to age 2. (Aug.)

PreS—This engaging board book features brightly colored paintings of the construction vehicles children love, with sound effects in blocky text. Excavators, forklifts, front loaders, and steamrollers "chug," "beep," "skwee," and "chumma hufft" their way through a busy day of digging. The book adds even more visual interest as the format changes from horizontal to vertical to accommodate tall apparatuses. Toddlers will enjoy joining in with the sounds of the vehicles and are sure to extend the fun with pretend play. An excellent addition to board book collections.—Martha Link Yesowitch, Charlotte Mecklenburg Library, NC
