I'm a fan of DK books.

They're simple. They're informative. They're cheap. If your child is too young to read, they're perfectly good read-aloud books.

What more can you ask for when stocking your kid's library?

This one has a simple story indicating the steps it takes to turn a factory into a park. Plenty of new vocabulary for any child interested in construction - and I don't know of one kid who isn't ultimately interested in construction!

Good for little ones. My 7 year old son was given this at school and didn't enjoy it at all, said it was babyish. Hopefully my nephew will enjoy it, as he is much younger.

Recommends it for: boys ages 1-8
Should be titled Construction Trucks.
Great pictures. Short informative sentences.
I will probably check this one out again.

A fun approximately 2nd grade reading level reader dealing with the topic of construction trucks. A must for those kids that rubberneck their way past every construction site.

This was a gift to my grandson. He has a "thing" for big machines and loves to read and look that the pictures every night before bed.
