From Hoban (Just Look, 1996, etc.), a series of full-page color
photographs of construction machinery at work, from a rubber-tired
backhoe to a crane with clamshell bucket. There are two pictures of
each, one a full view and the other a close-up, most of which are
noticeably grainy, lacking the crisp quality associated with
Hoban's work. All feature her trademark saturated color, and indeed
this book functions as a color concept book, with its succession of
red, yellow, and orange behemoths (the blue garbage truck, not
exactly in the class of construction machinery, ostensibly takes
away rubbish from the site). The names of the machines provide the
only text in the main section; a picture glossary includes brief
notes on the 13 machines featured. While not as tight as Hoban's
other concept books, this will be a winner with kids who have
devoured Byron Barton's Machines at Work, Anne Rockwell's Big
Wheels, and B.G. Hennessy's Road Builders and who now want real
pictures. (Kirkus Reviews)
Crisp, clear, full-color photographs show all the fascinating machines and earthmovers found at a construction site. Even the very youngest readers will want to put on hard hats!
"The roaring power of 13 construction machines is captured in clear, brilliantly colored photographs." -- Booklist
