Format: Paperback
My son who is 3 loves this book. He knows the names of ALL the construction trucks that I didn't even know existed (ie. backhoe? front loader?). The book describes the different jobs that the different trucks do while constructing a building. Good reading, good knowledge & my son wants me to read it over & over again!

My three year old LOVES this book as well as "Trucks Around Town" -- he does not have the other two in the series yet. The age range listed here, 4-8, seems a bit high to me. My son got these at age 2 and I think most 2 year old boys would love them.

The book is written partly in pictures and partly in words. For example, a sentence may be "The [pic of excavator] uses it's claw to clear [pic of rocks] on the site." So the adult reads the words and keeps a finger running along the text and when a picture comes up, the child can read that word out loud. To me that seems a cool way to help children understand how the letters they learn combine to form words which fit together to form sentences on a page. It is not learning letters or phonics, more just how reading sentences work when you have learned your letters and phonics. I hope that makes sense!

Even if you do not have the child read along, the stories are not bad. Because of my son's crazy love of construction sites and these and similar books, I now know more names of equipment then anyone I know!
