Illustrated by Dan Yaccarino
Clang-clang! Clunk! Crunch! A story about a working woman and the big machines kids love! From the best-selling author and illustrator team of Trashy Town.
Hook it, lift it, off the ground Easy, careful, swing it ‘round. Clunk! Phew! Good job.
Crane Jane punches the clock at the dock, then climbs into her tall, tall crane. She’s ready for a day of lifting cargo from ships to dry land. Then comes Jane’s biggest challenge of all—a firetruck! But when high winds send her load swinging, Jane uses all her skill to keep the crane under control. Parents and children can read together the clang-clang! of the crane and toot-toot! of the ships!
Crane Jane is the second book in The Big Jobs, Bold Women series, which introduces young readers to women as leaders in unusual jobs. The first book in the series is Firefighter Flo!
With dynamic artwork from Dan Yaccarino, Nickelodeon character designer for The Backyardians, and energetic verse from Andrea Zimmerman, best-selling author of Trashy Town, Crane Jane is the perfect read for truck and construction-obsessed kids.
