This rhyming, rhythmic read-aloud lays out every step of the construction process with simple language and vibrant art. I can't imagine a more perfect book for my machine-loving two-year-old. We also love the final page of the book, which details the much-loved construction equipment (and clues parents in to the real names of the machines). We check "Roadwork" out from the library every other visit, which probably means it's time to actually purchase the book!
"Construction" and "Demoltion" are two others by Sally Sutton that are equally adored at our house. Give them a try, too!
