About the Author:

Gail Gibbons frequently buys milk at a dairy farm near Corinth, Vermont, where she lives with her husband and two children. She is the author and illustrator of many award-winning books for children, including Trucks, The Post Office Book, and New Road. The Milk Makers is her first book for Atheneum.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3 Gibbons' usual work is still very unusual and, as usual, she has done a magnificent job of explaining a complex subject. Without oversimplification, she traces in straightforward text and brightly colored pictures the construction of a skyscraper from the clearing of the site to tenant move-in. Younger children will find answers to many questions, including why an evergreen tree is placed on top of a new building. Older children will appreciate the additional details and definitions incorporated into the illustrations. Male and female, multi-ethnic workers are included for a variety of trades and professions. Nothing similar is available for this age group; Sandak's Skyscrapers (Watts, 1984) is broader in scope and slightly higher in reading level. Like a skyscraper, Up Goes the Skyscraper! packs a lot into a small amount of space. Jeanette Larson, Mesquite Public Library, Tex.
