About the Author:

K. C. Olson is a children's librarian in the Midwest. The inspiration for this book came from her son, who taught her everything she knows about construction equipment and whose sandbox, unfortunately, isn't nearly large enough. Construction Countdown is Ms. Olson's first book.

David Gordon has done conceptual work for the Pixar/Disney blockbusters Toy Story, Toy Story II, and A Bug's Life. He has also illustrated a book and done work for numerous magazines. An avid fan of all kinds of trucks, he lives in New York.

From Booklist:

PreS-Gr. 1. Construction trucks are the focus of this backwards counting book, beginning with "Ten mighty dump trucks rolling down the road," followed by "Nine earthmovers scraping up a load." Each group of trucks appears on a double-page spread depicting the vehicles and workers doing their jobs. Olson's rhythmic, rhyming text is satisfying at each turn of the page, but never more so than on the last spread. Just when things have become comfortably predictable, Olson offers a little surprise, revealing that the trucks are not on a work site, but in a sandbox. Gordon achieves painterly effects in a series of digital illustrations with trucks in glowing colors set off against tawny backgrounds. The figures of workers in the first illustrations appear in the last one as tiny action figures set up in the sand. A simple, satisfying picture book for reading aloud to school children who are learning to count backwards and their younger siblings who are fascinated by trucks. Carolyn Phelan
