The Lovereading4Kids comment

Bold images with great attention to detail tell the dramatic story of how a hole in the road gets fixed. There are tractors and diggers, tipper trucks and dumper trucks each doing its job and making sure the work gets done. Visually delightful, this is also full of exactly the kind of information needed to answer all the questions ‘why?’ Little boys in particular will love this book and we’re confident they’ll get hours of entertainment from it.


A Hole in the Road by Jakki Wood

When a hole appears in the road, the workers have to use lots of different big machines to help them fix it. Diggers, road rollers, dump trucks - everything has an important job to do. Follow the workers as they clear the rubble, add crushed stones, pour on the hot asphalt, make sure the surface is flat and clean the road so that the traffic can move smoothly.


Boys in particular will love 'A Hole in the Road

-lover. The pictures are clear and detailed, and the text gives a nice amount of information about the work the machines are doing. This is a book which enthusiasts will want to read over and over again. Carousel
