What Does Bookroo Think of This Book

A mediocre construction-themed take on a classic nursery rhyme.

All about construction vehicles working to build a park, cheerful animal workers use excavators, cement trucks, and more equipment to build the kiddie pool, set up the park’s sign, and build sturdy playground pieces. After all the work is done, little animals excitedly enjoy the finished results as they play in the pool, climb the climbing wall, swing on the tire swing, and go down the slide. When reading the book’s text set to the text to the classic nursery rhyme “The Wheels on the Bus,” there are often too many syllables for words to fit effortlessly or easily. Phrases like “all through the construction site” instead of “all through the town” or “the drum on the cement truck goes” instead of “the wheels on the bus” cause stumbling and some extra effort to make the text fit. Construction fanatics will delight over this rendition of the folk tune, but ultimately the mismatched syllables throw off the tune creating a mediocre feel and overshadow the clever construction concept and adorable illustrations.
