This book played a part in my daughter's truck obsession.
on December 1, 2000
My 20-month old daughter LOVES trucks and loves this book. I picked it up on a whim because it was on sale when she was a year old and it's been a favorite ever since. I suspect she would have loved trucks even without the book. (We had some construction going on near our park and even I had to admit those giant excavators are pretty awe-inspiring.) But the book is responsible for her being able to correctly identify the differences between a backhoe, wheeled excavator, and front-end loader. Her mom certainly couldn't have taught her. This book is also useful to ignorant parents of a truck-obsessed child. Who knew tractors had so many attachments? My husband was pretty impressed when we passed some road work in the car and I started calling out, "There's a paver, a scraper, a roller. Oh look, they have both a concrete crusher and a track excavator."
