Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
With die-cut pages that grow progressively larger, Philippe Dupasquier matches nine different colored pencils, one to a spread, with corresponding animals, including a cardinal, yellow butterflies and pink flamingoes in Red Blue Color Zoo. The penultimate page depicts a flock of black bats. Two titles by Jane Chapman follow the same format: Let's Go! and Let's Build! In both books, a different vehicle appears on successive die-cut pages, each larger than the last. The first title, for example, begins with a single motorcycle and ends with a car carrier loaded with four Volkswagen Beetles.
Children's Literature
The smiling bricklayer trundles his mortar mixer into the building site. Ahead of him, construction vehicles wait in a line to do their jobs. In this shaped board book, successively larger die-cut pages reveal the equipment needed to build houses. On each page-turn, the bricklayer mixes mud, then lays courses of brick as a forklift, steamroller, bulldozer, cement mixer, digger, garbage truck, flatbed semi, and crane go about their various tasks. On the last page, the bricklayer waves goodbye in front of the two little bungalows he built. Paint-box-bright construction equipment scoops and digs against cheery backgrounds. Who can resist a hot pink bulldozer? The brief text is positioned on uncluttered space in easy-to-read font. Young construction workers will enjoy pointing out the operators who smile from their cabs. A fun, interactive book. 2003, Candlewick, Ages 2 to 5.

Meet the Author

Jane Chapman is the illustrator of many acclaimed books for children, including ONE DUCK STUCK and ONE TINY TURTLE. Of LET'S GO! and LET'S BUILD!, she says, "I was inspired by my two-year-old son, who is obsessed with all things related to transportation. I wanted to do a book that had lots of detail in the pictures and not too much text, and in preparation I did a tractor-driving course and even drove an excavator! I ended up putting members of my family in the pictures - my husband is in there, driving various things."
