Ill. by Brian Lovelock. Walker Books Australia, 2014. ISBN 9781922077301
Young readers will love this onomatopoeic picture book that takes them on a journey filled with construction as a library is being built. From the award-winning duo Sally Sutton and Brian Lovelock, this book is filled with bold visuals and rhyming text. If children love anything to do with machinery and tools, then they are sure to be interested in this book. The book ends with facts about construction machinery and tools to introduce readers to non-fiction features of texts. A great book to read aloud; the sound words will entice young readers to join in.
