Dump Truck Duck

Age: 3-6

A construction site, filled with feathered friends, buzzes with activity. Dump Truck Duck and his colleagues—Dozer Duck and Digger Duck—work hard all day to build a sparkling new park, depicted in soft watercolors. The bubbly rhyme is fun to read aloud: “He honks the horn and calls out, ‘Quack!’ / Then Dump Truck Duck drives right on back.”

Available at, $13.09.
