Bulldozer Helps Out

Reviewed by:

It is another busy day at the construction site as the big machines are stirring, lifting, scooping, and rumbling. All the while, Little Bulldozer is watching, watching, watching hoping for a chance to help. Finally the big machines give him a little job but are dismayed when the day ends and Little Bulldozer has just sat instead of getting his job done. That is until they find out why …
The illustrations of Bulldozer Helps Out are very child friendly with bright colours and simple designs.  Both the simple and open story and illustrations are reminiscent of Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site. The illustrator, Eric Rohmann has won both a Caldecott Medal and Caldecott Honor.   He used block print when creating the art for Bulldozer Helps Out.
This is an excellent book for children ages 3 to 7 who love big machines, or just love to help out and think they are also up for “tough” jobs.
