What Can A Crane Pick Up? by Rebecca Kai Dotlich

Has your child ever seen a crane?

Alfred A Knopf sent me a copy of this book for review.  It has been published, so check with your local bookstore for a copy.

The biggest cranes I've ever seen have been on TV in New York City.  When I worked for a city in the past, I saw them used by construction crews on our capital improvement projects.  This children's picture book shows young ones just how much a crane can hold and the various sizes they come in.

If you have a child that is interested in construction equipment, this is good book for them.  The text is poetic and makes it fun to read.  It might even lead you to buy some Tonka toys for your young one, you never know.

Happy reading.
