Roadworks Summary

Roadworks by Sally Sutton

It's fun to watch the road being built in this noisy, action-packed picture book! Move the earth. Move the earth. Dig and cut and push. Clear a pathway for the road. Screech! Boom! Whoosh! Tip the stones. Tip the stones. Lift and slide and dump. Lay the groundwork for the road. Crash! Roar! Thump! Full of shout-aloud noise words, rhythm and rhyme, this boisterous book follows the process of building a road from beginning to end. Children will love recognizing familiar sights, from diggers to road signs, in the bright, bold art.

Roadworks Reviews

Kids who love trucks and construction will find an ideal vehicle for their passions in this exuberant book. * Publishers Weekly *
Sutton's latest is a truck-lover's dream come true - repetition, rhyme and onomatopoeia form the text, while construction trucks vie for readers' attention in the illustrations. The result is a wonderfully noisy look at how roads are built...The level of detail matches the text's intended audience - enough to satisfy, not so much as to overwhelm. Pave the way to this book's shelf; perfect for read-alouds, it will be a hit whether shared with a group or one-on-one. * Kirkus Reviews *
