Then check out Monsters on Machines by Deb Lund, illustrated by Robert Neubecker. Another great one for storytime with bright, large and LOUD pictures. These monsters are using their machines carefully though, note the earplugs on the bulldozer driver.
And finally, local author Karen Magnuson Beil’s new picture book Jack’s House is finally out. Mike Wohnoutka uses large, bright acrylics to illustrate the tale, which is a clever retelling of the classic cumulative story using, what else, trucks and vans. Yes, they look monsterous big, and boys will love hearing this great read-aloud told from the perspective of the real builder, Max the Dog.
