It’s rhyme time as a diverse construction crew gets to work, removing an old building and constructing a new house in this bright and colorful picture book.
Staying safe is vital for the construction crew, so the illustrations show hard hats and safety vests frequently, but unfortunately omit the safety glasses needed by the power drill operator for eye protection.
As the crew puts the finishing touches on their project, the fun begins as a family moves into their new home and the neighbors greet them warmly.
Read-to-me listeners will soon be able to call out the answers to each “What do we need?” question as they learn to identify equipment and tools that the crew’s men and women use for each part of the job. Will they notice the feathered friend who checks on the crew’s progress throughout the project?
