School Library Journal

Toddler-PreS--Rinker and Ford bring to life the world of the construction site in this lift-the-flap board book. It's Spring, and the trusty machines are back in operation--Excavator, Dump Truck, and Cement Mixer get busy. When Crane Truck "grabs a load, then lifts his boom," Mama and baby ducks swim by from behind the reeds. Honk! Honk! call the trucks. Quack! Quack! reply the ducklings. As Skid Steer pushes with her blade, baby robins sing in a nearby tree. Signs of Spring are everywhere; tulips are in bloom, and rabbits and lambs frolic as the busy machines clear and haul. Rhyming text combines the workings of a building site with the natural world. Readers learn the function of each truck and lift the flap to find baby animals and spring flowers. When Excavator digs, "dirt starts to fly! Two little lambs look on nearby." The youngest readers will quickly pick up on the sing-song rhyming text and predict the surprise under each flap. Cheerful illustrations show friendly, tough machines with wide grins and determined expressions. Plenty of details provide the opportunity for little ones to pore over and discover something new with repeated readings. The final scene has the trucks and their new friends join in an Easter egg hunt. VERDICT Perfect for very young readers with a fascination for all things vehicular.--Sarah Webb
