Mighty, Mighty Construction Site by Sherri Duskey Rinker

Written and illustrated with what you've come to love - well paced rhymes, topic rich vocabulary, and soft, earthy palette in oil pastels, this book is a welcome addition to the series.

It's time for the construction vehicles to wake up and do their jobs.  Using rich vocabulary that pertains to their job, Rinker introduces young readers to words and verbs that center around the construction topic.  The trucks also can't do their jobs without the cooperation and help from other construction trucks.  Showing teamwork helps make their work go smoothly, great early example of central lesson and theme for young readers.

Pair this book with other stories that are full of rich vocabulary centered around a topic:

  1. I haven't seen the Steam Train books before, and they look like real winners - I'm always getting asked for train books, and I can't wait to add these to my arsenal! :-)
