The rumbling and grumbling of these tough trucks makes little construction worker hearts beat faster, while throwing in the warm, snuggly feeling even the smallest hard-hat wearer needs. Everything's busy at the construction site, but the bulldozer feels a little left out. While all of the other strong vehicles rumble around, he has nothing to do. When he finally gets a chance to prove his worth, an unexpected surprise brings everything to a halt. The exciting activity of a construction site comes to life in these vibrant illustrations. The illustrations are simple enough for younger listeners to sink into without completely losing the detail needed to draw curious eyes in time and again. Kids will have no trouble recognizing their favorite machines as they roar from here to there. The bulldozer gains tons of sympathy as he stands off to the side alone but wants to get involved-a situation kids will be able to understand and empathize with. The text is kept brief but hits home, bringing across the message loud and clear. It's great for even younger kids ages two and up. The twist at the end is a big surprise and brings all sorts of warm fuzzy feelings to life. It's unexpected and might have been hinted at least a little in the illustrations before to bring in more flow. But it definitely leaves a smile on the face--as well as a happy sigh--shows that even the toughest shell often holds a gentle heart. I received a complimentary copy from the publisher and enjoyed this book so much (and know little construction dreamers will too) that I wanted to leave my honest opinion and thoughts.
