Author Biography

My son about 3 and half years old, jumped with joy when he saw a dozer machine in the neighborhood. I noticed that and made a picture collection for him and then made it into a book. Later, I thought as might add illustrations so that elder kids might engage as well, and so expanded the work with some more machines. I am a construction engineer, entrepreneur and father of 3 kids.
