What Kind of Book is Construction

Trusted Reviews & Ratings

The Book Snob Mom
Mom of boys. Lover of Harry Potter, Jane Austen and believes one can never own too many children's books!
5.0 / 7.0

This is a super cute construction book, filled with onomatopoeia and rhymes that click off the tongue. I love how many different aspects of construction they show, including interior finishing work, and that they’re building a library!
