For fans of building and construction, or just fans of Dewdney's, this sweet gem might bring a tiny tear to your eye with its signature rhyming text so true to Dewdney's style and her darling illustrations. Meet Loader, Dump Truck, Backhoe, Crane and the littlest one of all, Little Excavator, who is small but mighty.
