You can do a lot with the right machinery, and the boy in this happy book has everything from a snowplow and a loader to a cement mixer and a dump truck. Never mind that his heavy equipment are toys. His vivid imagination turns them into the real thing. The boy has much to do throughout the year, such as plowing roads and building sidewalks. But his work is a joy, because he does it to show his mother how much he loves her. This charming picture book by Jean Patrick, illustrated by Karen Dugan, introduces children to a wide range of machinery, while conveying a loving theme that makes it a perfect book for children and parents to read together.
