Bulldozer’s Big Day
by Candace Fleming, illustrated by Eric Rohmann
Atheneum Books for Young Readers, 2015
Little bulldozer, excited his special day is here, runs to his friends to invite them to his party. But digger says today is, “Scooping … scooping … scooping,” and Bulldozer’s blade droops a little. He runs to Scraper, Grader and Roller and they are all busy filling, chopping, and mashing. Sadden nobody’s remembered, Bulldozer turns to go home, when “Wooot!” then “Feeef!” then “Tooot! Hoooot! Wooooo!” and Crane lifts a big cake up from a hole and Bulldozer and his friends celebrate his special day. A heart touching story captured in award-winning artist, Eric Rohmann’s, friendly, kid-like and inviting illustrations. Great for young ones who are fascinated by large heavy equipment.
