Reviews

PreS-Gr 2-The enthusiastic backhoe from Kate and Jim McMullan's popular book (HarperCollins, 2006) fairly dances through a day of muddy, messy work in this entertaining animated film. He introduces himself and describes his working parts, then gleefully heads off to work, relishing the chance to get messy and describing his tough job as, "Easy as pie. Make that a MUD pie!" The chores are accompanied by music by David Mansfield that changes to suit the mood, a lively ragtime beat and staccato rhythm to mark the backhoe's countdown of items that are being cleaned up from an abandoned lot. With joyful alliteration, he tosses "10 torn-up truck tires, 9 fractured fans, 8 busted beach umbrellas..." until all are in the dumpster. The text that cascades over the pages of the book is enthusiastically and expressively read by Steve Buscemi, and it can be displayed as subtitles or hidden. The DVD concludes with an interview with the authors who discuss the book and explain how they research each machine. This energetic and irresistible book is even more fun through the magic of animation.-MaryAnn Karre, Horace Mann Elementary School, Binghamton, NY Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
