Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Told in rhyme, the big construction trucks are skeptical when Kid McGear the skid-steer shows up on the big construction site, after all a skid-steer is rather small--but when the big trucks run into trouble on a steep incline, Kid McGear proves that sometimes a small all-purpose truck may be just what is needed to save the day.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 October #2
    A flatbed arrives at a construction yard and unloads a tiny but talented truck: "Clean and shiny, all brand-new, / with lots of cool attachments, too!" Eager to help, she introduces herself as Kid McGear and asks to be put to work. The five original trucks ask her to move aside while they get a big job done, and she complies. But when Excavator and Bulldozer slide down a steep hillside and get stuck, the new truck quickly devises a plan and goes into action, calling on Dump Truck, Crane, and Cement Mixer to help extricate their old pals. Success! While the story's closing line celebrates teamwork, this satisfying tale, told in verse couplets, also taps into the basic fact that every little kid wants the respect of the big kids. Ford, who also illustrated Construction Site on Christmas Night (2018) for Rinker's popular Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site series, offers lively, detailed scenes featuring these expressive mechanical characters. A crowd-pleasing picture book for truck fans. Preschool-Kindergarten. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
