MY FOUR YEAR OLD BOY LOVED THIS BOOK. HE'S INTO TRUCKS AND IT'S GETTING INCREASINGLY HARD TO FIND GOOD ONES. THIS ONE HAD THE PATTERN OF A FAMILIAR STORY BUT WAS ALL ABOUT BIG RIGS. I'VE BOUGHT ALL DAVID GORDON'S TRUCK BOOKS AFTER READING THIS ONE.

This is a wonderfully thoughtout book. It introduces great vocabulary about tools and machinery. My kids LOVE to repeat the phrases by the Big Bad Wrecking Ball 'I'll crash and I'll bash and I'll smash your house in!' and the rig's 'not by the chrome on my chinny chin chin.' It's a great book for boys, and girls like it too.
