Watch Out! Builders About! by Mick Manning, Brita Granstrom

Mick Manning and Brita Granstrom, award-winning author/illustrators of many of the Wonderwise titles, have created an exciting new collection of young non-fiction books that are perfect for children just beginning to read. Each book explores a particular area of learning with a simple narrative text and beautiful illustrations which, where appropriate, are labelled or given very simple captions. This differentiated text gently introduces readers to some of the methods of extracting information from a non-fiction book, but still enables them to read the book as a story - or simply look at the pictures. Each book has a list of contents, further information and a glossary/index. Watch Out Builders About! Looks at a building site where a boy watches his new home going up.
