PreSchool-Grade 1–This sunny picture book takes readers through the entire construction process, from vacant lot to community center. Beginning with the early-morning arrival of a backhoe, an enthusiastic young boy describes the various trucks that come to the site and the activities of the workers. When the building is complete, he and his neighbors enjoy all that their new community center has to offer, and even paint a picture of the digger on the wall. Simply told, and with large, clear illustrations, this offering will be fun for storytime or for one-on-one sharing. The text is peppered with sound effects ("Grr-clank!" and "Rumble and rattle"), and the last page has labeled drawings of the vehicles. A great choice for libraries that cannot keep enough construction books on the shelf.– Laurel L. Iakovakis, Douglas County Libraries, Castle Rock, CO
