Bulldozer Helps Out

written by Candace Fleming
illustrated by Eric Rohmann

About the book

The construction site bustled.
Cement Truck was stirring … stirring … stirring.
Digger Truck was scooping … scooping … scooping.
Crane Truck was lifting … lifting … lifting.
And Bulldozer was—watching … watching … watching.

Little Bulldozer wants to help, but all the bigger trucks say he is too small. So when Crane Truck says he can clear a bit of debris out of the way, Little Bulldozer is eager for the job. He can do it, yes he can. What he doesn’t expect is to find a family of newborn kittens living in the pile of debris! Can he take care of babies? Now that’s a tough job. A job that happens to be just the right size for Little Bulldozer.

Read the reviews

“... the little bulldozer in Candace Fleming and Eric Rohmann's Bulldozer Helps Out has to watch and wait before he can dig in. When the bigger trucks finally assign Bulldozer a job, he quickly realizes it's more important to stand your ground than move the earth. Whether depicting massive machinery or little kittens, Rohmann's solidly constructed and deftly colored block print illustrations make every page turn a delight."
