Everything's busy at the construction site, but the bulldozer feels a little left out. While all of the other strong vehicles rumble around, he has nothing to do. When he finally gets a chance to prove his worth, an unexpected surprise brings everything to a halt.
The exciting activity of a construction site comes to life in these vibrant illustrations. The illustrations are simple enough for younger listeners to sink into without completely losing the detail needed to draw curious eyes in time and again. Kids will have no trouble recognizing their favorite machines as they roar from here to there. The bulldozer gains tons of sympathy as he stands off to the side alone but wants to get involved-a situation kids will be able to understand and empathize with. The text is kept brief but hits home, bringing across the message loud and clear. It's great for even younger kids ages two and up.
The twist at the end is a big surprise and brings all sorts of warm fuzzy feelings to life. It's unexpected and might have been hinted at least a little in the illustrations before to bring in more flow. But it definitely leaves a smile on the face--as well as a happy sigh--shows that even the toughest shell often holds a gentle heart.
I received a complimentary copy from the publisher and enjoyed this book so much (and know little construction dreamers will too) that I wanted to leave my honest opinion and thoughts.
He asked his fellow trucks what he could do to be part of the project. Dump Truck told him he was too little to help. The other trucks agreed that construction work is only for rough and tough trucks.
Feeling sorry for Bulldozer, Crane gives him a special task. He must clear away a pile of rubble and flatten out a new construction site. Will Bulldozer be able to prove that he has what it takes to get the job done?
I think this is a wonderful story that is full of action and heart. Children will definitely be able to relate to Bulldozer and his passion for helping others.
Additionally, Eric Rohmann's illustrations are outstanding. Each character is large and vibrant and will certainly capture the reader's attention. I also love the subtle details that provide clues as to what will happen next in the story.
This is a fantastic read for children ages 4-7.
All the construction vehicles are working, but Bulldozer is too small to help, until they spot a job for him.
There's a pile of things that need to be cleared that's just his size.
Bulldozer charges over but UUUUUURRRRRTTTT!
Stops short and...naps instead of works?
You'll be perplexed as to why he did this until you get to the end of the book and find out that he didn't work for a good reason!
The story is really fun and has lots of great action words and the illustrations are adorable; Bulldozer is SO CUTE!
I can't wait for more adventures with Bulldozer and friends!
