It's time to start your day with Duke and his crew of construction worker dogs. They are ready to knock down an old building with their wrecking ball, using a bulldozer and dump truck to clean up the mess. But Duke has to check the plans before giving the go. Digging tunnels and laying concrete is only half the fun. The skilled dogs are taking great care to do their job, and hurry to finish all the wiring and fixture before the day is done.

In Build, Dogs, Build: A Tall Tail, author and illustrator James Horvath introduces kids to a construction site led by foreman Duke and his skilled crew. This book is an easy read with brightly illustrated pages filled with dump trucks, cranes, and dogs in hardhats. Horvath's fun rhymes and  a great rhythm are packed with tons of construction terminology for your child to learn. This is a lively book any child who loves trucks will enjoy.
