Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Pull the tab on the cover and watch Bizzy Bear use a backhoe to start digging a hole in the grass. It is a building site and young readers will enjoy helping out with the various construction tasks. They will pull another tab and Bizzy moves a pile of sand. Behind it is a cement mixer which Pig is loading with sand. How about another pull and a dump truck unloads gravel. Bizzy certainly has talent as he has already driven three different construction vehicles. Next he moves a load of bricks, but in the final scene, Bizzy waves good-bye as Donkey is driving the big crane. Behind Bizzy, the construction team is putting the finishing touches on the house that they have been building. The back cover asks two good questions to make young readers think about what they have seen, heard, and participated in. It is a sturdy book with pulls and tabs that move easily and it is an excellent approach to understanding the sequence of activities which lead to a concrete conclusion. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
Kirkus Reviews
Bizzy Bear knows how to get the job done. He assists his fellow animal construction workers in building a house from the ground up. All donning hard hats and protective boots, the team quickly turns beams and boards into a home. Bright, digital spreads, predominately in a warm, sandy palette, keep the focus on the building site. Sturdy sliders placed within well-engineered die-cuts allow children to manipulate the machinery, though the tabs' minute sizes and varied placements make the interactive items a little tough for young toddlers. Bizzy bulldozes sand, transports gravel and lifts bricks. A rhyming, chipper voice narrates each scene with a surfeit of exclamation points. In the final scene, pulling the tab up opens the blinds to reveal Bizzy's friends working on the cottage's interior; a pig and rabbit wave from the top of the chimney. A bustling companion, Bizzy Bear, Off We Go!, briefly introduces familiar modes of transportation through a similar design. Bury the excessive exclamation points and focus on the visual details to salvage this dig. (Board book. 6 mos.-2)
