About this item

A rollicking board book about cranes - the kind that pick things up!What can a crane pick up . . . a truck? Yes, a truck! And a truck . . . And a truck . . . And a railroad car, if it gets stuck. We start with pipes and bricks and loads of steel and then move on to funny, whimsical objects: a cow, a Ferris wheel, men in business suits, and an ancient mummy's case. With a rhyme from poet Rebecca Kai Dotlich that begs to be read aloud again and again, and friendly, exuberant illustrations from artist Mike Lowery, this book is sure to delight kids and parents alike. But watch out: Cranes pick UP - that's what they do! Look out, or a crane might pick up you!
