Mighty, Mighty Construction Site by Sheri Duskey Rinker // Illustrated by Tom Lichtenheld
I am the world's worst book blogger when it comes to writing individual book reviews. I guess I have to love a book enough that I feel compelled to share it. That and the fact that it takes some effort to come up with the right words to do it justice. Also, I am super skeptical when it comes to follow-up books so I was pleasantly surprised to find that my toddler and I thoroughly enjoyed “Mighty, Mighty Construction Site”.
In true sequel fashion, this book picks up where the children’s bestseller “Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site” left off. After a good night’s sleep, the trucks wake up ready to get to work. After going about their morning routine, they take a look at the architect’s plans and realize they need a bigger crew. More trucks and heavy equipment answer the call and together the friends pair up to get the job done.
Brilliant, catchy rhyme teams up with wax-oil illustrations that lend human qualities to construction vehicles. Together they show the action and satisfaction of a job well done and how we can accomplish more in our individual roles through cooperation. This wonderful lesson cleverly disguised as “rough and tough construction play” is sure to be a new favorite for children and parents alike.
