Yo manejo una niveladora/I Drive a Bulldozer

PreS—A bulldozer driver named Noah narrates this series entry. He describes the gear he wears to stay safe, and how he maintains his vehicle. He explains what a bulldozer does and outlines a typical day of work. One spread demonstrates the machine's power by showing how it can take down a large tree. Some of the focus is on Noah himself—how he is outside and subject to the weather and how he can heat his sandwich on the bulldozer's hood at lunchtime. Factoids are included in small text boxes on each page. End matter includes a diagram of a bulldozer and a glossary. The best thing about this book is the artwork. Created digitally, it feathhhhhures bold colors and simple stylized lines, which will have enormous appeal for youngsters who can't get enough of big rigs and heavy equipment. Despite some challenging vocabulary, this title is sure to be popular.—Tim Wadham, Children's Literature Consultant, Fenton, MO
