Max is asked to put away his toys. As he puts away each truck/construction toy in turn, he imagines himself playing with/driving them in progressively larger scale. Once the toys are put away, Max and parent go out, and peer into a construction site where the life-size versions of those trucks are working.
Most pages only have a single word (digging, lifting) on them and the crane page folds out. The illustrations are colored primarily in white, construction orange, and gray, giving it a simple f
To be fair, I should say that my 2 1/2-year-old, who picked this book out from the library, would probably give it a higher rating than 3 stars. He has requested "the digger book" multiple times since we brought it home. It's not my favorite, though. I think the illustrations are cool (I like that the only colors are black, white, and the yellow of all of the trucks) and I like that the book illustrates the child's imagination by showing him manipulating his trucks in his hands and then eventual ...more

Sawyer (2.5) would rate this book 5 stars. He makes me read it 3 times in a row. I don't love the artwork and plain color scheme (especially the gold and black...hate those colors). I don't mind how few words there are because it gives us an opportunity to talk about what's going on and to make sounds. Upon the 3rd reading I did discover a little deeper meaning in the drawings. Matt gets smaller as the diggers get more life-sized. And they are actually helping clean up his toys in the process.

This will be fantastic to read in toddler time. Very few words--but plenty of actions to get the children to do along with the book. Large illustrations to capture their attention. And a great choice for any of the truck-loving kids we have in the group.

4/27/10 & 4/29/10 & 5/3/10 & 5/5/10: Perfect. Each group loved it. A couple had extreme truck lovers so they thought it was great. And they loved doing the motions and such. But they all LOVED the lifting truck. Even the parents thoug
My 4 yr old daughter loves this book now. My son loved it when he was 4 too. :)
This book is about all the different kinds of trucks workers use.

This would be a beginner book and helps introduce different types of trucks and their jobs that they do. It would be a great book to have around the classroom for the kids to pick up and read when they want to

In this book a little boy had to clean up all his trucks. He pretended to be a workman. He digged with one of his trucks. He plowed with one of his trucks. He pushed with one of his trucks. He rolled with one of his trucks. He scooped with one of his trucks. He loaded with one of his trucks. He hauled with one of his trucks. He sweeped with one of his trucks. He lifted with one of his trucks until it was all cleaned up. I didn't like this book because it was about trucks. -by Felicity

My son picked this book out from the library last week.

The little boy in the illustrations for this book looks very much like my little blond-headed boy, so, naturally, I changed the name in the book from Matt to Thomas. Then my son wanted to know how the book knew that his room was messy. He also was entranced by the type and number of trucks in this book. He likes this book, but he does prefer his Trucks Go Pop! book right now. I'm OK with that.

All kinds of construction trucks. Little boys know them all.
Alexander The Triumphant
In this book a little played with his trucks. He digs with one of his trucks. He plows with one of his trucks. He pushes with one of his trucks. He rolls. And then scoops. And then he loads. And hauling. And sweeping. And lifting. And then he cleans up and then his Mom tells him he can go outside for a little while. I liked this book because there's trucks in it. -by Alexander

I read the board book version of this and I have to say I really enjoyed the story line and the pretending Matt did with his trucks while he cleaned up his room. The pictures lend themselves well to story time and children will love doing all the actions the trucks are doing.


A little boy cleans up his room using a variety of trucks and gives a one word description of their work such as hauling, plowing, and loading. Features a gate-fold illustration that opens into a three-page spread.

A book that is exactly what the title suggests: all about trucks. I know some little boys who would have loved this book when they were in their earliest years.

I like how the pictures and accompanying words get bigger page after page. I also like the page that opens and all the detail Sis puts into each truck.
I need to remember this one for Jack. Not much to it, but then again, Jordan isn't all that in to trucks. I'm a bit curious as to why she picked this one...
This book has about on word for each page. It explains all the different things that trucks can do. I would recommend this book for kindergarten or younger.
Little Miss and the Legomeister
Legomeister loved this book when he was three and four. Simple yet imaginative, it's a pleasure to read.

Peter Sis brilliantly captures a child's fascination with anything "truck".
