Construction by Sally Sutton

Join in the exciting adventure of building a new library, with Construction by Sally Sutton.

From digging the ground, to painting the walls, you are with the team for every step of the big build.

Each page is about a different aspect of the build, and is written in a rhyme, with added sounds of the machinery/tools at the end of each sentence. One thing that I noticed myself doing was reading it in the voice of Bert from Mary Poppins, as each sentence starts with the same phrase twice. ‘Build the frame. Build the frame’.

The book has bright, colourful, bold illustrations, that children will love looking at. At the back of the book is an illustrated glossary of the different types of machinery and safety equipment that was used during the construction.

I think youngsters, especially ‘digger mad’ little ones, will love this book. I just wish that they were building more libraries in real life, rather than closing them down.
