It's hot and dusty on the construction site, and things are getting a little tense for the five trucks working hard to get the job done. Bruce the bulldozer notices that rudeness has taken over. Daisy Dump Truck drops her cargo. Moe Mixer drives straight into Carson Crane, and he, in turn, bumps into Excavator Ed. Something needs to be done, and fast.
Bruce racks his brain trying to come up with a solution. And then he remembers a lesson he learned in kindergarten: fight impoliteness with politeness and just being kind. He hopes he can change the attitude of the trucks by being helpful and polite.
Through a collection of colorful construction trucks, The Impolite Construction Site tells a rhyming story about the importance of politeness and working together to get the job done.
Bruce the Bulldozer says it best: I know that it is awfully hot, and we can get quite testy, But arguing and acting out just leaves this really messy. Let's work together as a team and try to be polite. I know that we will have more fun and get the job done right.
