Construction Sites Magnetology by Marie Fordacq

Awesome, Amazing--and Magnetic!Take a look at any busy playroom--it's a construction site! From their first blocks to when they pick up a toy car and go Vroom-vroom! , kids are drawn to vehicles and putting things together. That irresistible combination is featured is this over-sized, so-much-to-do entry in the MAGNETOLOGY series.Flaps, gatefolds, and 45 magnetised workers, machines, and tools offer everything kids need to help construct a road, a house, a town. It's a proven way to encourage playful, hands-on exploration, sharpen observation skills, and build...bright minds!


Part of the Magnetology series, this oversize board book includes 45 construction-themed magnets-pipes, doors, signs, and loads of vehicles-that can be stuck and re-stuck onto the pages. (A helpful closing spread identifies the vehicles and their capabilities.) The book's four scenes revolve around the building a home, expanding a road, and supplying a neighborhood with water and electricity; Latyk's crisp digital artwork leaves plenty of open space for children to fill with jackhammers, cranes, excavators, and their operators. A mix of questions ( How do you think electricity gets into your house? ) and construction details add some substance to the magnet-driven fun, while letting readers consider which tools are right for each job. Ages 3-5. (Apr.)
