Let’s Go, Construction Trucks!

Scholastic. Scholastic, $7.99 (12p) ISBN 978-1-338-25681-9

Readers can touch and spin two big die-cut wheels on each spread of this sturdy board book. In rhyming couplets, six construction trucks introduce themselves and describe their jobs. “Mixed cement spins in my drum./ Then I lift and out it comes!/ I am a concrete mixer.” A bulldozer says, “I push all the junk away./ Now there’s room to build today! Each truck invites readers to “make my wheels spin. Let construction begin!” On the final page, an orange crane has a rotating gear, in addition to the two spinning wheels. Action and vocabulary words set in a bold font, bright tones, and a satisfying tactile element offer lively early reading. Ages up to 3. [em](Feb.) [/em]
