Synopsis

Roadworks by Sally Sutton

It's fun to watch the road being built in this noisy, action-packed picture book! Move the earth. Move the earth. Dig and cut and push. Clear a pathway for the road. Screech! Boom! Whoosh! Tip the stones. Tip the stones. Lift and slide and dump. Lay the groundwork for the road. Crash! Roar! Thump! Full of shout-aloud noise words, rhythm and rhyme, this boisterous book follows the process of building a road from beginning to end. Children will love recognizing familiar sights, from diggers to road signs, in the bright, bold art. It is full of noisy vehicles and clanking machinery - a fun and informative picture book. It contains an illustrated glossary naming and describing each road-building vehicle.
