She might be small, but she's got it all — she's Kid McGear, Skid Steer! Kid McGear is the newest truck to join the crew, and she's eager to help with even the roughest and toughest construction work. Although the other trucks welcome her, they're skeptical if such a little truck has the strength to take on the big jobs they do. But when a steep cliff traps Bulldozer and Excavator, the new Kid on the site proves she's big enough for even this big, big job. She takes advantage of her nimbleness and compact size to engineer a creative — and collaborative — solution, and the big trucks realize that the best part of working as a team is that everyone's strengths can be put into play to save the day!
Playful rhyming text from the bestselling team behind Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site makes this thrilling tale of teamwork and the BIG potential in the littlest readers a must-have read-aloud for construction fans both big and small.
"While their welcome is cordial, the five trucks underestimate Kid’s size and strength.... Kid doesn’t stew or pout — readers will get a strong sense that she knows her worth — and when Bulldozer and Excavator become trapped at the bottom of a steep hill, she’s first on the scene, engineering a solution and directing the collaborative rescue effort, all while making the most of her nimbleness and compact size. With Bulldozer and Excavator safely extracted, the construction crew now numbers six — 'each one greater than they seem,/ because they’re working as a team.'" — Publishers Weekly
