A Good Read: Bulldozer Dreaming
An NC author gives kids insight into how bulldozers get ready for bed
In this imaginative, fun tale, a tired bulldozer heads for slumberland after a long day of clearing dirt, rocks and trees. He stops by the “Wiggle and Shake” for a bath, then rolls up to the “Sip and Slurp” for supper (where his belly pan swells and gives up a burp). After choosing a bedtime story, he dreams sweetly of finishing his important work. Author Sharon Chriscoe, who lives in Pilot Mountain and is a Surry-Yadkin EMC member, enriches her tale with gentle, rhythmic verse. John Joven drew the charming, colorful illustrations. Hardcover, 34 pages, $16.99 (available starting Tuesday, Oct. 3 at barnesandnoble.com). E-book is $9.99 at amazon.com.
