Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Many children with an interest in these topics are likely to know more about these pieces of machinery than the authors offer. The vocabulary is extremely simple and may be appropriate for beginning readers but statements such as "Earthmovers are made to move earth" and the blade "-makes the earth smooth, like frosting on a cake" add little to the text. Tractors makes no mention of the source of the tractor's power. Implements are referred to as machines. The color photography is of acceptable quality, but is not always congruent with the text.-Eldon Younce, Harper Elementary School, KS Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

    Highly recommended

    This book gives all kinds of great information about front-end loaders, bulldozers, and other kind of earthmovers. We had a copy from the library and had to have our own one at home. My 2 & 1/2 year old grandson loves this book!
