Roadworkby Sally Sutton
Load the dirt. Load the dirt. Scoop and swing and drop. Slam it down into the truck. Bump! Whump! Whop! There are many big machines and busy people involved in building a road, and this riveting board book follows them every step of the way. From clearing a pathway (screek! ) to rolling the tar (squelch! ) to sweeping up at the end (swish! ), Roadwork is sure to delight young truck-lovers with its rambunctious rhymes and noisy fun. Also features an audio read-along!

I don't often write reviews but felt compelled with this one. We randomly selected this book at the library 2 weeks ago. To say that both my 4 yr old daughter and 2 yr old son LOVE it would be an understatement. Reading this book together (which is no easy task with a 4- and 2-yr old!) has become an integral part of our day so I decided to purchase our own copy and make it a permanent part of our home library. The author and illustrator have created a perfect mix of visual imagery, sing-song rhyme, and fun onomatopoeias. My 2 yr old requests it by name two or three times a day and actually sits still and looks & listens; my 4 yr old has memorized most of the pages and "reads" along with me. I am purchasing one for both my nieces and my nephew!
