K-Gr 2-This title presents photographs of some of the real trucks and tractors employed in constructing a city park, which is disappointingly shown only as a busy cartoon drawing at the end. Through sharp, full-color pictures, readers are introduced to a crane outfitted with wrecking ball, a bulldozer, a front loader, a dump truck, an excavator, and other heavy machinery used in tearing down old buildings and in laying the foundation for new construction. Smaller photographs highlight part of each vehicle-the tailgate on a tipper truck, the chute on the concrete mixer, and so on-although the inserts are a bit confusing since they show clean showroom trucks that are quite different from the dirty machines actually doing the work. Although billed at the easiest reading level ("Beginning to Read-Preschool to Grade 1"), this picture book definitely requires listening from its audience up through first grade. Still, the vivid photographs will certainly grab young engineers' attention.-John Sigwald, Unger Memorial Library, Plainview, TX Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
