Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Farmer Dibble tires of bumping over the unpaved route into town and asks city hall for a new road. Just like that, the mayor, county engineer, and surveyor put their heads together and construction begins. Youngsters will be beguiled by the images of all the heavy equipment needed for such an undertaking. Bulldozers, front-end loaders, graders, and the like are the focus of the watercolor art and the operators are mostly fuzzy outlines. The story is told in short, declarative sentences and the simple vocabulary makes it accessible to beginning readers. While not particularly new or exciting, this title may appeal to the many children who are enthusiastic about construction equipment.-Rosalyn Pierini, San Luis Obispo City-County Library, CA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
