A boisterous picture book full of noisy fun for machine-mad kids."Plan the road. Plan the road. Mark it on the map." Roadworks takes the reader through all the stages of making a road; from planning to construction to driving on the finished road, the full journey is detailed for young and curious minds with a rhythmic text and bright illustrations. A great book for active boys full of onomatopoeic words to read aloud.
