The sounds, sights, and activity of a construction site provide for endless fascination.

Whether it's building a bridge or a skyscraper, a giant ship or a tunnel, there's a wealth of color, action, and knowledge to be gleaned on each of the ten spreads of this oversized book. A wonderful companion to The Ultimate Book of Vehicles on the Spring 2014 Twirl launch list.

Love it , but probably for an older child


I am a 35 yr old civil engineer and i love this book. Love it. My 2.5 year old loved it too. However i feel it would be better for a maybe 4 or 5 year old. He loves all the flaps and moving parts but is a little rough and i think the level of detail is a bit lost on him. I hope all the flaps and things are still intact once he is old enough to appreciate it more. Amazing book though.


Hours and hours of fun


My 2 year old loves this, lots of bits to move around and pull out!



Fragile but worth it!


My 3 years old love it so much! Every night he wants to read this book first before he goes to bed.



Really is the Ultimate


My son, who received this book at 2.5 years, is machine obsessed. Just loves it. Just remind him to be a little careful with the moving parts, but it isn't too fragile. Fabulous book.
