Down at the construction site, mama and papa trucks show their youngsters how to build. Push oosh goes a big mama bulldozer and her one little dozer! Dig schlup goes a tough papa excavator and his two little excavators!
Count along with every scooping, mashing, and spinning family of trucks in the construction site–all the way from the bright early morning till it’s time to snuggle in to bed. Picture book talents Rhonda Gowler Greene and Daniel Kirk have joined together for a book that will dig its way into the hearts of those who love Where Do Diggers Sleep at Night? and Digger, Dozer, Dumper.
“The addition of the sound effects is a nice touch that will be appreciated by storytime audiences. . . . Counting practice for construction-truck fans.” – Kirkus Reviews
“Showing the gentler side of construction sites and big rigs, Greene and Kirk’s excursion should satisfy young truck-lovers.” – Publishers Weekly
