I found one of these books in the Library "A Day in the City" and brought it home with in the day everyone of my children 20 years to 6 years had throughly scoured the book to find all the things that were recorded with in, It even entertained myself as I read it and searched the pictures with my youngest. I have since brought home "A Year on a Pirate Ship", "A year on a Farm" and "A Year at a Construction sight." I highly recommend this series of book for any family.

The book is listed for the '5 and up' crowd, but I would recommend it more for the 4-8 year old with a particular interest in all things construction.

The pictures are packed with fascinating little details that are fun to look around and hunt for. For example, there is someone eating in every picture though there is one page that I haven't found the guy/gal yet! The action covers the demolition-through-construction of a new school over the course of the year. Not all months are shown, but each one has a nice theme (ie placing the floors).

I would have found this perfect for my oldest when he was young...he was an avid fan of construction (I'm pretty sure that was his first word), but I bought it for my more 'builder minded' 10 year old. He was unimpressed. Really, this was only due to his age and I actually had fun going through it.

So, highly recommended for the happy construction/builder fans, but I would say for the 4-8 year olds with the younger ones looking at it with their parents.

Our 18-month old loved finding Goldbug in Richard Scarry's "Cars and Trucks and Things That Go" and was challenged even more finding the various objects in this book. His new favorite book.

I gave this as a gift to a boy five-years-old. He took it everywhere with him for weeks! He even took it to bed with him! He loved looking for the characters that re-appear throughout the book and seeing the weather change as well. This is a great book for any little boy!

fun and busy pictures with SO MUCH DETAIL for little boys to discover what goes on in a construction site. You can never find all of the activity - always something new. Really gets their little minds thinking, but also gives them a very real picture of what's required to build something and what's going on in our world around us. Definitely creative and inspirational.

This book is clever but very hard to follow. We purchased it for our 3 yr old who is obsessed with all things construction. The premise is to follow the construction progress throughout 12 months however the photos on each page are so crammed that its really hard to actually keep track like you're supposed to. The photos are very busy with tiny images and everything all jumbled together- almost like a where's waldo book. I am not a huge fan of this book however it may be better suited for an older child.

My son loves this book. I thought it might be too much for him at 3, but he has really caught on. He loves seeing all the steps for construction through the seasons and learning what all the different jobs are for the people and machines. Wonderful book for any child that loves "diggers" and great extra for discussing season changes.

My son is obsessed with construction sites and equipment. This book is SUPER exciting for him. We have read it over and over. There's always something new he picks up from it and finds interesting. I'm very happy with this book and this series.
