**STARRED REVIEW** "Not only is its construction-site theme a passion for many children, its bold colors and thoughtful design will engage little hands and eyes as they pore over the pages. Sure to inspire calls of "READ IT AGAIN!" — Kirkus Reviews
"Construction fans will happily add these rarities to their vocabularies as well as pick up strong action words like "burrow" and "span." Hand this upbeat treat to your budding builder." — Shelf Awareness
