Summary
A very little bulldozer learns that taking care of kittens is a very big job in this darling follow-up to Bulldozer's Big Day from award-winning author Candace Fleming and Caldecott Medalist Eric Rohmann.

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.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The young hero from Bulldozer's Big Day (2015) returns seeking meaningful work. The construction area bustles with activity (Cement Mixer stirs, Crane Truck lifts, and Digger Truck scoops), but Bulldozer can only watch until Crane assigns him a job clearing a small lot adjacent to the new building. He approaches his task with joyful enthusiasm, but when the big guys return, they're upset that nothing has been done. Bulldozer reveals the reason a box of baby kittens so the softhearted construction vehicles give Bulldozer a new assignment: caring for the felines. Fleming's vivid prose makes good use of action verbs and teems with onomatopoeic creations that help the story come alive for young listeners. Rohmann's art employs reduction printing to good effect. Bold, black outlines and basic color choices for the vehicles will help young readers to discriminate the characters, and the use of distinctive facial expressions on the windshields both humanizes these machines and conveys their emotions. An appealing choice for motor-vehicle aficionados and fans of the earlier title.--Weisman, Kay Copyright 2017 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Fleming and Rohmann subvert expectations several times in this handsomely illustrated follow-up to Bulldozer's Big Day. Initially, it looks like a familiar too-small-to-help construction story. Then, after Bulldozer is asked to flatten out a section of terrain, it seems like he has fallen asleep on the job. The reality-that he's protecting a mother cat and her kittens-comes as a tender surprise, which underscores the idea that talents come in all shapes and sizes. Many parents, meanwhile, will likely side with Dump Truck, who quips, "Taking care of babies? Now that's a rough, tough job." Ages 4-7. Agent: Ethan Ellenberg, Ethan Ellenberg Agency.
