    I got this book for my son who is in love with construction vehicles thinking it would be another way to teach the alphabet. The illustrations are terrific – lots of things to see, name and tell the color of. The story, while it rhymes, uses lots of words, not just the same simple ones over and over. (I didn’t know it rhymed until I read it on my own without stopping to comment on every little thing on the page!) My son has since incorporated some of the “big” words from this book into his every day lexicon.

    My Son’s Favorite Book, August 4, 2003
    By A Customer

    My 21-Month old son LOVES this book… he is fascinated by construction trucks and such and gets so very excited when we read it. It is very bright and colorful and gets his attention each and everytime. He loves pointing out everything and is always his first choice to read at bedtime! If your little one is as truck crazy as mine is, s/he’ll love it!

    A delightful book!, April 7, 2006

    Armchair Interviews (Minneapolis, MN) –

    B Is for Bulldozer is not your average ABC book. Loaded with fun and avoiding the standard format, children recognize the alphabet that is intertwined in the lines, rather than starting them–without even knowing that they are in the process of learning. All while learning the names of big trucks and construction terms.

    Children watch as construction begins at the site. But what is being built? Anticipation builds for our little readers who start asking by page six, “What are they building, Mommy?” And they actually get to find out. By the second read, they know just when to join in and holler, “Z-O-O-M!!!!!!!”

    Read-aloud cadence is not intuitive, but quickly learned as my son will testify. Girls like it, but before you sit down with your young big-truck-loving boy, be prepared for, “Again!” And one “again” won’t be enough.

    Armchair Interviews says: A delightful ABC book that also tells a story.
