There are many big machines and busy people involved in building a road, and this riveting picture book follows them every step of the way. From clearing a pathway (SCREEK!) to rolling the tar (SQUELCH!) to sweeping up at the end (SWISH!), Roadwork is sure to draw young onlookers with its rambunctious rhymes and noisy fun.
"A truck-lover's dream come true — repetition, rhyme and onomatopoeia — perfect for read-alouds, it will be a hit whether shared with a group or one-on-one." — Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
