What Can a Crane Pick Up?

What Can a Crane Pick Up? Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

A truck, a train,

a car, a plane

can all be lifted with a crane.

From poet Rebecca Kai Dotlich and artist Mike Lowery comes a rollicking picture book about cranes—the kind that pick things up! 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 that begs to be read aloud again and again, and quirky, exuberant illustrations, 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!
