More fabulous huge machines for the kids who love them.
A bulldozer is often a child's first construction toy. This book shows the real machine hard at work, carving roads, clearing land, ripping rock, demolishing buildings, mining, quarrying, plowing snow and working for the military. This book describes the many different blades and attachments and how a bulldozer's design keeps it from falling over or tipping backward. The photographs also show the many sizes of bulldozer, from the mammoth crawler to the (relatively) tiny calf bulldozer used in mining.
The Mighty Machines series features vivid color photographs of enormous machines as they dig, dump, load, pull and lift. Children will thrill at the size of these behemoths and enjoy seeing these vehicles strain under the weight of such tremendous work.
Vivid color photographs of these mechanical marvels at work jump off the page. In large type for young (and old) eyes, the machines, their parts and their uses are concisely described. Glossaries explain essential terms, and suggested activities add to the fun. The big format and vibrant design make these books perfect for kids to read alone or share with a friend.
