First you'll meet the crew. Then you'll see all the trucks up close - cement mixers, bulldozers, dump trucks, graders, pavers - and learn what each one does. And finally, you'll watch a bustling new road come to life!

Publishers Weekly

This soup-to-nuts explanation of how roads are constructed begins in an empty field and ends on a busy freeway, and it offers just the right amount of information for its intended audience. Readers watch as members of a road crew bulldoze, dig, dump, grade, pave, roll, paint, mark and light a new roadway--and then drive off into the sunset to their next job. Bolstered by Hennessy's ( Jake Baked the Cake ) concise text, Taback's ( On Our Way to the Forest! ) bold, attention-grabbing colors and oversized, up-close-and-personal illustrations are action-packed and will thrill young truck-lovers everywhere. It's a splendid introduction to a world that many children find riveting. Ages 2-7. Children's BOMC main selection. (Aug.)
