Oh my, I am absolutely smitten! This warm and tender tale of a girl and her grandmother finding joy when they rent their apartment, Over The Shop, is also a story of tolerance, acceptance and friendship. In this wordless picture book, you and your child will become engaged by filling in the dialogue. What fun to ask your children: "What do you suppose she's thinking?" or "What do you think he said?" A story of transformation.
This book about bravery is so ridiculously fun to read aloud (wait til you get to the twist in the middle). I love Corey R. Tabor's storytelling style; with delightful characters, actual facts about Kingfishers and an inventive format, this book has got it all.

There are so many positive messages in this story. As the crew of trucks works together it teaches teamwork and that everyone is important. The flatbed, skid steer, and loader are all girl trucks- trucks aren’t just for boys! Maybe most importantly, the story of demolition tells that everything destroyed will be sorted, saved, and used again.
