Load the dirt. Load the dirt. Scoop and swing and drop. Slam it down into the truck. Bump Whump Whop
There are many big machines and busy people involved in building a road, and this riveting board book follows them every step of the way. From clearing a pathway (screek ) to rolling the tar (squelch ) to sweeping up at the end (swish ), Roadwork is sure to delight young truck-lovers with its rambunctious rhymes and noisy fun.


Great book


My 2.5 year old son loves this book. It is really good. Nice bit of repetition, informative, has illustrations of people constructing a road from start to finish including machinery. Top 10 favourite for my son.



Lyrical text and great illustrations


Perfect gift for my 18 month old nephew. Lovely rhyming text which tells the story of road construction. Simple and yet realistic illustration style. Have another of this series at home which my son really enjoyed too.

Great book


My 2.5 year old son loves this book. Great pictures and simple info about road building from start to finished even included putting up road signs and lighting which most other stories don't. Highly recommend.
