Summary

Trucks lift, dump, mix, and carry things.

They do all kinds of jobs. Tractors help on farms. Sanitation trucks clean city streets. Some trucks carry houses, or even the space shuttle!

Seymour Simon's pumping, squashing, telescoping tour of these powerful vehicles, with colorful, eye-catching photographs, captures the fire trucks, monster trucks, forklifts, and more-- in action!

Trucks push and pull. They dig and dump.
They sweep and shovel. They carry and crush.
Everyday. Everywhere.Trucks push and pull. They dig and dump.

School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 4-This book is full of color photographs of big, shiny trucks, all on the job. In comparing their size and weight to dinosaurs and elephants, the text also emphasizes the vehicles' power and strength. Pictures show these oversized transports hauling logs, moving a house, carrying and dumping heavy construction materials, taking children to school, and carrying gasoline from refineries to gas stations. Simon explains what a semitrailer truck is, and why the drum of a cement mixer rotates while the truck is moving. The exciting photographs, many of them close-ups, will captivate youngsters. Though the sentences are long and the vocabulary sophisticated in places, the visual appeal of this book is very high and the information is clear and equally engaging.-Edith Ching, St. Albans School, Mt.
