Editorial Reviews

Kids curious about how houses are built will be completely enthralled by Fred Levine's 35-minute presentation of virtually every aspect of house construction. A brief narration about each step of the process is provided by George, a construction worker initially found operating an excavator, followed by several minutes of close-up footage of construction workers using an amazing variety of tools and machinery. The live footage is accompanied by lots of rock-inspired instrumental music that will have kids tapping their feet and dancing about. Stages covered include excavation, foundation pouring, framing, and interior and exterior finish work. Copious footage of the making of concrete, from blasting at the rock quarry to its preparation at the mixing plant, and of the manufacture of lumber, including cutting, transport, and milling is lengthy, but provides visually appealing, detailed answers to a child's natural curiosity about the nature of these materials. Glimpses of children performing actions similar to those of the construction workers help kids relate the construction process to real life. For instance, foundation pouring is likened to making sand castles at the beach, and excavation is compared to kids playing with shovels in a sandbox. A minimal amount of commentary paired with lots of footage of the construction process provides a mixture that will rivet your child's attention to the screen. (Ages 3-11) --Tami Horiuchi
