Kids who love vehicles will delight in this vibrant sequel spotlighting each truck's contribution to a team effort to construct an impressive building. The rhyming text by Sherri Duskey Rinker (Steam Train, Dream Train) makes Mighty, Mighty Construction Site fun to read aloud. Illustrator Tom Lichthenheld (This Is a Moose) uses beautifully hued oil pastels to bring the trucks to life, speeding to work and rumbling through the job site.

The story is a solid introduction to the work done by different types of trucks, but it really shines as it demonstrates the satisfaction of working together on a challenging project. Refreshingly, two of the rugged trucks are identified as female (a flatbed truck carrying a 50-ton load and a skid steer breaking up rocks).

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
