More fabulous huge machines for the kids who love them.

Loaders easily move material around job sites -- no matter how big or difficult it seems. This book reminds children how often they actually see loaders. In the city loaders are used as snowplows or to move building materials and tools. In the country a farmer might drive a loader down a road with bales of straw in its bucket. A highway road crew uses a loader to move gravel, and loaders with a fork attachment are used in factories, warehouses and lumberyards.

The Mighty Machines series features vivid color photographs of enormous machines as they dig, dump, load, pull and lift. Children will thrill at the size of these behemoths and enjoy seeing these vehicles strain under the weight of such tremendous work.

Vivid color photographs of these mechanical marvels at work jump off the page. In large type for young (and old) eyes, the machines, their parts and their uses are concisely described. Glossaries explain essential terms, and suggested activities add to the fun. The big format and vibrant design make these books perfect for kids to read alone or share with a friend.
