This book uses the alphabet to explore a construction site. Every item you find has a different letter of the alphabet. It turns out to be that they were building a Fair. Great for teaching the alphabet and it shows lots of different materials that kids should learn.
As a year passes, a construction crew works diligently to bring an amusement park to town. Each page spread contains rhyming lines with two letters of the alphabet emphasized. Some of the construction alphabet, such as the "b" for bulldozer in the title, are quite appropriate while some are a bit of a stretch, such as "x" for excitement. Nonetheless, it's a short, fun book that would likely appeal to its targeted audience of preschool boys.
Wonderful book for a 2-3 year old--the rhyming helps little ones remember the words and the pictures are great and so when grandson just turned 3, he was so proud that he could "read" the book by himself after having it read to him many times before.
I purchased this book for my son who loves diggers and construction vehicles. Overall the book is a quick read and does focus really well on each letter of the alphabet. The title can be a bit misleading though as the book is actually about building an amusement park and not specifically about bulldozers. It is still a nice book though and I would recommend it for younger children.
