School Library Journal

"These three titles use colorful, flat, digital graphic pictures to show large pieces of equipment in action. Facts are included in boxes in the lower portions of the pages, in a listing at the end of the book, and within the basic texts, which are narrated by the operators. The individuals have no interaction with other people as their day and machine are described. Primary colors are prominent. The books’ large size makes them useful for classrooms and benefits their subjects. Young children will enjoy just looking at the pictures and discussing what they know and love about these vehicles. These offerings are practical purchases for simple reports or learning about community helpers and will appeal to preschoolers who can’t get enough of this subject." - School Library Journal

Children's Literature (CLCD) - Sharon Oliver

"This title in the "Working Wheels" series is a joy to behold for every six-year-old boy and probably a few older boys as well. The invitation to explore begins with tire tracks that decorate the end pages. We then meet Nicole, who drives the snowplow. She explains that her truck is really a dump truck with a special blade on the front. Nicole tells us her job is to move snow off the streets, as well as put down sand and salt that makes the road safer. Nicole describes how she has to be very careful and drive slowly because her snowplow is so much bigger than other cars on the road. The major text blocks are all short, easily readable sentences. Small text boxes every couple of pages reveal more detailed information at a higher reading level. For instance, Nicole tells us, "Spinners on the back of the truck spray the salt and sand onto the road" while the box text informs us, "The sinners are plastic disks that whirl in a circle. The faster the spinners turn, the more salt and sand they spray on the road." Illustrations, which are rendered digitally, contain interesting shapes and lines that invite the reader to explore the pictures thoroughly. The series consists of titles, including I Drive a Semitruck and I Drive an Ambulance. The book also includes a glossary, page of fun facts, index and suggestions for further reading in the library and on the web. This is a wonderful addition to any library that serves small children." - Children's Literature (CLCD)
