Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Presumably, it is Matt's mom who has asked him to clean up his room. We then see each truck along with a single word describing what it does. The illustrations, mostly in yellow-orange, are spread over two pages until near the end one illustration unfolds to reveal a crane stretching upward on three pages. Each successive truck is bigger and fills more of the page as does the size of the word describing its action. There are nine of them, and the numbers one through nine also appear in the structure of the crane. Deceptively simple, there is more here than may meet the eye initially. After his room is cleaned up, Matt gets to go out and see the real trucks in action. A nice transition from the original picture book to the new board book format. 2004 (orig. 1999), HarperFestival/HarperCollins, Ages 2 to 4.

This has entered the pile of before nap and before bed books. Fun for him to name all the trucks and say what they do.

My 2 1/2 year old boy loves this book. He has it memorized. We could read it 20 times in a row and he wouldn't loose intrest.
