Excavators, Motor Graders, Bulldozers and Giant Dump Trucks
I found this set of Big Yellow Machine books by Jean Eick in our local library. I was SO impressed with them that I actually went and purchased them all. Why?
In my opinion, they were written before (1997) the age of “dumbing” kids books down. I had originally planned on reading them to Caleb (4) now, using them as part of his schooling but once I started reading them I realized they were WAY too advanced for him so will keep them for a later stage. They are actually recommended for kids 7 & up.
There is a lot of information in each of these books and one of the best things I like is the geography included. Where in the World? visits different places where these machines are used not to mention some have some history in them too. SO these books are a versatile teaching/learning tool that we will use in the future. Although older, really not outdated as these big machines do not change much.
Some are available in both hardcover and paperback, others just in hardback.
I shopped around and ended up purchasing mine from three different vendors:
