The front cover features Tipper, the dump truck with rubber wheels to feel. The cover theme of construction is clear from the yellow and black stripes with industrial-looking screws. Tipper's jolly smile and eyes, plus bunnies and a bird keep things light and cheerful.
Inside, we meet three additional trucks, Dozer, Diggit, and Stretch the crane. Each page features easy-to-read rhyming text. Touch-and-Feel features include gritty sand (actually more of a non-shiny glitter glue, not like sand paper), more rubber wheels like the cover, reflective mirror windshields, shiny blue silver foil, shiny silver foil, and a final gritty roadway (same as the gritty sand earlier).
The text features lots of onomatopoeia: "Thud! Whomp! Crash!" Themes include helping each other, working fast, and getting the job done. The last line says, "God bless...Good night to each of you," which is the only Christian element of this book. It also doesn't rhyme with the last stanza. The animals from the cover show up on the last page, but are not mentioned in the text and are background as opposed to prominently featured.
Overall, this book had a decent variety of feels to touch and the variety of trucks was good. The rhymes were easy and fun to read, especially the onomatopoeia. I would recommend this to children who like trucks.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher, but was not required to post a positive review.
Trucks are strong and they are big. Meet Dozer who can shove while Diggit digs. Tipper, the dump truck, and Stretch, the crane, each has a job to do to get things done. But all their jobs are different.
Diggit will lift the dirt into Tipper’s truck bed. They work together to get things done.
Thud! Whomp! Crash!
Working together , helping each other is a lot of fun as they sing while they work.
Honk! Beep! Beep!
They don’t leave a job undone. Every truck helping each other while also cheering.
As the day goes on the team of trucks continues to work on the job at hand. Soon it is time for everyone to leave. Time for them to head home knowing they did their best, they worked together as a team and it was done right.
It is hard let me tell you to write a 300 word review on a book that takes a minute to read.
This is a board book so it is very sturdy and can last a while. As young ones read this book, or read to them, they can feel the dirt being talked about, the tires of the trucks or feel the road they trucks are driving on. The pictures are vivid and colorful which can make a young child more apt perhaps to want to read more. The illustrations are just right for the material being read.
If you have a small child or know of one this is a great beginner book for them.
This book was received fore free in exchange for an honest review.

Genre: Christian, Children, Construction, Boys, Trucks and Tractors, Teamwork, Board Book, Touch and Feel
Plot: Working on a busy construction site requires teamwork from characters like Digger, Tipper, Diggit, Dozer and Stretch as they lift piles of wood, haul dirt and rocks, and move the earth to build the work site. They are colorful, cheerful and know that by working together, they can get the job done faster and better than by working alone or fighting.
Complete with touch and feel elements on each page, young readers (especially boys) will love this book and want to read it over and over while reenacting their favorite scenes.
Likes/Dislikes: This is a very simple short little book full of dirt, rocks and noisy trucks and tractors. My four year old daughter loves it and has trucks and tractors of her own to play with. The two year old was intrigued by the touch and feel spots but overall could care less about the story itself. She's rather a girly-girl. While I personally thought it was cute and perfect for my oldest, I found the touch and feel spots to be lacking. They are mainly sandpaper, a shiny mirror and some smooth "rubber." Not very intriguing at all in my opinion.
Rating: G-all ages.

This is a great book for parents to read to their young children but it is also one that is easy enough for a young, new reader to practice reading!
