Editorial Reviews


This book is intelligent and informative, with craft, rhythm, great art, and entertainment.
—School Library Journal (starred review)

Adorable multiethnic children are the drivers of these 16 trucks—from construction equipment to city trucks, rescue vehicles and a semi—easily standing in for readers, a point made very clear on the final spread. Varying rhyme schemes and poem lengths help keep readers’ attention. ... While there are many rhyming truck books out there, this stands out for being a collection of poems.
—Kirkus Reviews

Vestergaard (Potty Animals) offers 16 poetic tributes to big machines and trucks that should prove deeply satisfying to young connoisseurs and the grownups who read to them. ... Slonim’s pictures are rendered in bright acrylics (fire engine red and construction sign yellow prevail) and outlined in appropriately rugged charcoal; their burly cuddliness skews the pages toward younger imaginations.
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

[Youngsters] will be captivated by the lively artwork. ... Fun for reading aloud, especially one-on- one.

[T]hese playful verses sing the praises of sixteen trucks and the work they do. The lighthearted acrylic and charcoal illustrations enhance the poems’ humor and give their subjects loads of personality. There’s some refreshing gender equality, too, as six of the trucks are female.
—The Horn Book

Although Slonim’s perky accompanying cartoon illustrations play to a younger crowd, Vestergaard’s careful wordsmithery, precise terminology, and sly humor assure that the poems themselves will be appreciated by even more sophisticated listeners. ... Vestergaard changes up her rhyme and meter enough to keeps things interesting, and the scansion is reliable enough to coax even poetry-shy adults into trying a read aloud. Newly independent readers might want to step up to the mic, too, and share in the fun of a high-energy, clanging and banging poetry performance.
—Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

A charming set of rhymes... This is a wonderful addition to the bookshelf of any kid fascinated by big trucks. And who isn't?
—San Antonio Express-News

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

As a kid, I was a book fiend. I read anything and everything I could get my hands on, including encyclopedias, cereal boxes, and "grown-up" books. I lived at the library, checking out the maximum number of books allowed each week and blasting through the summer reading programs. When I exhausted the youth and young adult departments at the library, I walked to the flagship Borders store and read new books, cover-to-cover, in one sitting. (I was gentle, I promise. And all the books I buy now more than make up for my childhood borrowing!)

When I was eight or nine, I wrote this sentence in my journal: When I read a good book I feel like I'm hiding inside it, watching the story happen around me. This is still true today. When I read a great book, I fall right in and I'm oblivious to everything else.

When I was in college, Jane Yolen, Patricia MacLachlan and Jane Dyer visited my Children's Lit class. I distinctly remember thinking, "That's a cool job!" But it didn't occur to me that it could be my job. I was planning to be a psychologist or teacher. I taught in early childhood programs for many years before I considered writing my own stories. After reading hundreds of books to young kids, I was fascinated by their responses to different books. Why did they love books I hated? Why didn't they love books I loved? What made a good book good? Eventually I started putting my own words to paper, and later, that led me here.

It's actually a little odd writing this biography. As a writer, I'm always looking for ways to improve my craft and better understand the writing process, so I'm intrigued by the personal backgrounds of my favorite authors. But as a reader, I prefer not to be aware of the writer at all. I just want to fall into books, and I don't blame anyone else who feels the same way. I hope readers fall into mine.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fun book about vehicles that makes you wonder "which truck would you like to be?"
By J. Walton on April 21, 2018
When our little one was a year and a half old we decided that we should work on getting some reading material for him. We came across Digger Dozer Dumper and thought it would be a fun book.

Every page in this book is nicely illustrated and has a fun poem that describes the functionality of the vehicle that it references. A couple of months after owning this book he went and got it, sat down with it and, before we knew it, he chewed a piece of the corner off of it. In the year and a half that we've had Digger Dozer Dumper it is by far the most read book. Now that he's three, he is even starting to join in on the reading aspect.

If you're looking for a book that is not only fun to read, but can teach your child about what the different vehicles are able to do, then this is a must have for your home library.

5.0 out of 5 stars Digger, dumper, dozer, you are a winner!
Reviewed in India on August 23, 2018
My 3 year old is fond of vehicles and this became his fast favorite. It had vehicles like cherry picker and tow truck; something that I rarely find in other books.

All trucks are described using peoms. Since we are Indians my son's mother tongue is not English. So even if I read it to him he doesn't enjoy it much.

On the other hand, my 5 year old daughter who is not into vehicles also surprisingly enjoys this book. Especially the peoms on the last page.
