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 board 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 delight young truck-lovers with its rambunctious rhymes and noisy fun.

Review Quotes

Both my 4 year old son and 19 month old daughter request this book nightly. Very catchy wording and the pictures are colorful. One of the few books sturdy enough to handle 2 kids!

My 17 month old son loves to listen to this book at story time. Lots of ryhyming and funny sounds, good bright illustrations, and thick durable pages. Perfect for the vehicle-obsessed little boy! My son liked his book so much I just bought another one for my 3 year old nephew.
