First Line: “Construction is the process of creating and building infrastructure or a facility.”

Summary: The construction site is a dangerous place to visit but it’s rich in lessons too. With the use of a picture book, your child can be “in” a site but without any danger involved. A picture book is a wonderful tool that helps your child surpass all basic development stages with flying colors. It appeals to the senses, it fuels the mind and it cultivates a love for learning too!

Review: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a honest review.

I wrestled with how to rate this one for a while. This kids book has a lot of pros and cons. It’s cool that there were great real-life stock photos from construction sites for kids to see so they can connect the dots more easily to the word and the real thing. The book went over different construction site roles and equipment in a decent order (not a good one, but better than their usual books). However, the terms used are far too technical and advanced for the targeted age group. I could see a glossary might have been useful, but one wasn’t produced. If your kid is maybe 6-7 years old, is really into construction and you are okay with explaining terms like facility, infrastructure, or excavation, then have at it.

Worst part: Advanced terms

Best part: Stock photos

Grade: B

Recommend For: Parents and teachers
