Everyone is busy on the construction site, but while Cement Mixer stirs and Crane Truck lifts and Digger Truck scoops, little Bulldozer’s only job is “watching … watching … watching.” Yearning to help, he’s given a job clearing away a small pile of junk. He charges off ready to work … and then does almost nothing! When the big trucks check on him later, Bulldozer isn’t interested in hearing what they have to say. “Shhh!” he admonishes. What’s gotten into this kid? It turns out Bulldozer has found a different job to do in this charming companion to Bulldozer’s Big Day. The story features the same gathering of rumbling, grumbling, lovable construction site characters and their eager young companion, the same lively language, and the same bold, personality- filled illustrations, along with the addition of a soft, sweetly foreshadowed surprise (“His motor hummed, soft as a lullaby.”). (Ages 2-5)
