Push! Dig! Scoop! A Construction Counting Rhyme
Illustrated by Daniel Kirk (best-selling illustrator of Chugga-Chugga Choo-Choo, Library Mouse series, etc.)
In this counting book from 1 to 10, Mama and Papa construction vehicles teach their little ones how to build. There are bulldozers, excavators, wheel loaders, dump trucks, pipe layers, cement mixers, cranes, graders, asphalt pavers, and steamrollers. After a hard day's work, all scrubble up, snuggle in, then dream about tomorrow.
Over by the dirt pile where big beams of steel arrive
works a papa pipe layer and his little pipers FIVE.
"Lay!" says the papa. "We lay!" say the five.
So they lay plunk plunk where big beams of steel arrive.
“A clever reimagining of "Over in the Meadow" featuring different families of construction trucks busy attending the daily chores by a dirt pile...This appealing picture book will work well in classrooms and storytimes and as a bedtime read.”
