Extremely Cute Animals Operating Heavy Machinery - OPTIONAL

Gordon, David Extremely Cute Animals Operating Heavy Machinery.  PICTURE BOOK.  Simon & Schuster, 2016.  $18.

When the extremely cute animals try to have fun at the playground, the bullies ruin their fun again and again, making them EXTREMELY ANGRY.  But the cute animals have a plan – and in the end, it may just include the bullies, too.

The animals are extremely cute and the machinery is heavy.  The story, however, left me a little bewildered.  It takes a child’s sense of the impossible to revel in the absurdity of the cute animals’ final creations. 

Pre-K – OPTIONAL.  Cindy, Library teacher
