Expect giggles from readers as the rookie cement mixer gets confused about which white powders he needs to be mixing. The illustrations are bright and eye-catching as well.

This cute book held the interest of my group of toddlers during storytime. Pairs well with the song, "The Wheels on the Truck".

Cement mixer is new to the construction site, and when he his asked to get cement, he mixes up some other white powders (flour and sugar) instead. Simple, repetitive text, and a straightforward storyline work well for beginning readers. And it would fit perfectly in storytimes about trucks, construction, baking or bathtime!
