Dump Truck, Dump Truck
Coming through!
I spy a triangle—how about you?  

It’s no secret that toddlers of any gender love big vehicles. Shape Up, Construction Trucks! uses rhyming verse and bright photographs to celebrate this enthusiasm in a unique take on conceptual shape books. Each spread highlights geometric shapes hiding in plain sight on excavators, bulldozers, cranes, and more. And after the toddlers have browsed the pages to their heart’s content, a final note to parents offers enriching, age-appropriate activities to keep building their child’s foundational skills.

By kindergarten, most children should have developed the spatial sense to identify shapes in real-world environments. Shape recognition lays the foundation not only for geometry, but for learning to recognize letters and numbers as well. With repetitive, easy-to-remember verse from the award-winning author of Nat the Cat Can Sleep Like That, Victoria Allenby’s Shape Up, Construction Trucks! is a highly visual shape book that digs deep.

★ “Storytime gets a kick in the pants with this jaunty combo of shapes and vehicles….Clear, crisp, clean, and concise—trucks and shapes have never before looked (or sounded) this good.”—Kirkus Reviews ★ Starred Review
