Description

From the country to the city, winter to summer, Hard Working Wheels always help out. These vehicles move across the land and through the cities working with the people who run them to perform important jobs for us all.

Feel the excitement, hear the sounds, and watch as the hard working wheels that keep us safe go into action. Catch the flash of a well-polished fire truck as firefighters work together to douse a roaring blaze. Hear an ambulance screaming by on its way to a rescue. Watch a police car glide by on a city street, patrolling our neighborhoods.

In the country, farmers plow their fields with heavy tractors and careful school buses carry their small passengers to important drop-offs.

On a construction site, workers drive bulldozers, shifting rubble, while backhoes dig deeply into the ground.

This second book in the Mighty Wheels series explores vehicles that have strong steel arms stretching to the sky or hoses that pump water or big bellies to carry books and food. Whatever they are doing, you can be sure that hard working wheels are helping out, making our lives a whole lot easier. Like Load 'Em Up Trucks, Hard Working Wheels is written with simple, rhythmic text and clearly detailed, colorful pictures.

Editorial Review

What a great way to introduce new vocabulary on the...machines that can be seen working or in traffic every day! The book contains the expected and always popular fire engine, ambulance and police car with their exciting sirens. Then some more unusual choices are included, such as a zamboni machine, a cherry-picker, a snack truck and even a bookmobile! An introduction to the book is full of good suggestions on how to share the book with young children. School age children may enjoy using the detailed yet simple illustrations of each vehicle as a model for their own drawings. Each machine, painted in vivid watercolours, is shown on location, each helping out in its own way. A second title in the Mighty Wheels series, this book will appeal to the young action vehicle enthusiast.... Recommended.
