Every preschooler who is mad for machines will revel in this bright, boisterous picture book about the exciting process of building a road.
"Load the dirt. Load the dirt. Scoop and swing and drop. Slam it down into the truck. Bump! Whump! Whop!"
There are many big machines and busy people involved in building a road, and this riveting picture book follows them every step of the way. From clearing a pathway (SCREEK!) to rolling the tar (SQUELCH!) to sweeping up at the end (SWISH!), ROADWORK is sure to draw young onlookers with its rambunctious rhymes and noisy fun.
Sally Sutton is a playwright and author of two previous picture books. She lives in New Zealand.
Brian Lovelock is a geophysicist as well as a fine artist. ROADWORK is his first picture book. He lives in New Zealand.
