My boys 2 and 4 love this book. It is a great take on conventional nursery rhymes. Each son knows every rhyme by heart. We have had this book for over four months and we still "read" it every day. It is a fun book that your children will love and start reading to you. Perfect for a child who loves construction!

Truly terrific book! VERY well-written, very well-drawn.

Appealing to toddler and preschool boys and girls. An interest in construction will make the book extra enjoyable, but I think any child this age would enjoy the interesting writing (who doesn't love verse?!!) and fun illustrations.

Our 12-month old son was already familiar with nearly all of the songs/rhymes in the book, but I think he would like the book equally well if that were not the case. I find it easier, as the primary reader, being familiar with the songs/rhymes. My husband is less familiar so just reads the ones he does not know as poems; that works fine for baby and reader in our family.

Enthusiastic 5-star rating from parents, older sibling and target audience-age son!

This book is one of my two-year-olds favorites. We originally saw it at the library and he loved it so much we had to buy our own copy. It is a great combination of songs + trucks. The first time you read it, you have to figure out which nursery rhyme is being used so you know the tune/rhythm, then it's very fun.

This book is not only appealing (to primarily preschool little boys) because of its content, but it rhymes in a delightful manner giving word play positive reinforcement. It does what Mother Goose does while teaching them about construction vehicles simultaneously!

I did not receive this book in the mail, but the seller was very gracious and refunded my money. I have read this book many times to my 3 year old. And he LOvES it! Some rhymes are songs, some are nursery rhymes, all construction related and super cute.
