Description
"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."

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
