Elliot lives near a concrete plant and every day goes to watch the cement mixers. The drivers recognize him, his father takes him to the quiet yard on the weekends, and Elliot knows that he will be a trucker when he grows up. Rich drawings executed in pastels show Elliot playing with trucks or watching trucks on the freeway while his friends engage in other activities. On his seventh birthday, he even holds his party in the truck lot, and his favorite trucker gives him a ride in his truck. Readers who love everything about trucks will notice that the cherry pickers mentioned in the text are missing from the double-page spread of trucks Elliot likes to watch, but they'll also wish they could hang out in Elliot's neighborhood. Easy enough for beginning readers and smooth enough to read aloud, this is a fine choice for young truck fans. --Susan Hepler, Alexandria City Public Schools, VA
