A boisterous picture book full of noisy fun for machine-mad kids.

Roadworks is made with machine-mad pre-school boys in mind, though girls will also love the exciting noise-words, rhythms and rhymes. Roadworks aims to differ from other machine books in that it shows an actual project being completed from start to finish, in this case, the building of a road.

    Comments about Roadworks:

    My 2 year old absolutely loves this book and apart from wanting to read it all day long, he will often sit down to just look at the pictures! Absolutely fantastic!
