Digger, Dozer, Dumper

By Hope Vestergaard
Illustrated by David Slonim

Each truck and big machine in these enticing rhyming poems is different — and little readers are invited to find a vehicle that’s like them.

Sixteen boisterous, rhyming poems — each one highlighting the job and personality of a different vehicle, from a backhoe to an ambulance to a snowplow — invite young children to meet their favorite trucks face-to-face. Cheerful illustrations show each one in action, digging (or dozing, or dumping) away. Engaging visual details like an anxious turtle crossing the street just ahead of a steamroller are sure to keep preschoolers poring over the pages as they consider the question, “Trucks as far as eyes can see. . . . Which truck would you like to be?”

  • An irresistible book for any truck lover.
  • Contains truckloads of information along with wonderful rhythm and wordplay.
  • Illustrations are full of details and humor for kids to pore over.
