What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

It’s Cement Mixer’s first day on the job and he doesn’t want to make any mistakes. How can he help the other trucks on the construction site? By mixing some powdery white cement, of course!

He mixes it up, adds a little water, and presto . . . a cake?! He must have mixed flour instead of cement.

Not to worry, he’ll try again . . . and presto! Frosting?! He’ll keep trying until he gets it just right and it’s time for one more mixing: a bubble bath!

This is a very simple story. Not long, just a few tasks that a cement truck tries to perform. Although he gets mixed up with which white powder to use, he eventually figures out the right one. I think lessons could be learned of giving clear instruction, and also how to handle messing up. Should we try again? Definitely. Not a particularly implied message which makes it even more fun to discover and enjoy. Plenty of humor to keep the kids laughing as well.
