Learn about six different construction vehicles in this guessing-game board book

This nonfiction follow-up to Whose Truck? features six kinds of specialized rigs used to construct a light-rail system—a tunnel borer, an excavator, a bulldozer, a tie dragon, a tamping machine, and a bucket truck—with five different parts of each rig properly labeled. The answer to each inquiring refrain of “Whose rig is this?” is revealed under a gatefold, engaging the reader in an informative guessing game about construction machines and their operators. With lyrical (and factual!) rhyming text by New York Times bestselling author Toni Buzzeo, and the expertly stylized art of Ramon Olivera, this sturdily constructed board book is perfect for curious and playful young readers.

WHOSE BIG RIG? is a delightful board book that takes children through the vehicles involved in building a light rail, beginning with the tunnel borer through the excavator, bulldozers, and more. Each page features a task that needs to be completed, followed by asking whose big rig this is on one side, while the other side features a vehicle with its key parts labeled on the outside of a flap. Lifting the flap gives the job name of the person who operates that vehicle, along with a comment bubble about what they are doing.

What I loved: This is a fantastic book for construction vehicle enthusiasts. Although little ones might not yet be able to put all the jobs together themselves, they can appreciate the different tasks and vehicles that do them. The labeled vehicle parts were especially cool, as many adults may not know what all the parts are called. The illustrations are full of bright colors and feature the vehicles front and center, keeping young readers' attentions.

The font is clear and easy to read, and the flaps are nice and sturdy, the size of the whole page. This makes for large illustrations and plenty of fun.

Final verdict: WHOSE BIG RIG? is a delightful lift-the-flap board book with bright colors and lots of construction vehicles. Recommend for toddlers and preschoolers who are into trucks!
