Description

An interactive reader experience that poses the question: which machine is best for the job?

Children love machines! Especially big ones! Big ones in the dirt! Construction Machines is a new take on the world of big machines. It looks at a specific job that needs doing, then provides information on the right machine to do it, whether a digger, steam roller, excavator, loader or bulldozer.

The book includes sections on quarrying stone, laying a road, building a skyscraper, digging a tunnel, and demolishing a building. Each section begins with a construction scene and asks "what sort of big machines can get this job done?" A sidebar gives the reader different machine options and subsequent spreads take a detailed look at the amazing machines that are up to the challenge.

Accessible text gives the key characteristics of favorite machines and colorful sidebar boxes give each machine's vital statistics. Value priced, colorful and informative, this is the perfect book for all young machine enthusiasts! Pack it up with Emergency Machines (9780228101123) to make a great gift.
