This crew is building a new house and use all kinds of big equipment in the process. They dig and doze and haul away before they begin to hammer and nail and drill. Slowly, a house comes together with new neighbors bringing house-warming gifts.

Nice little board book with bright illustrations and simple text. Each page poses a question that is answered by the piece of equipment featured on the page. Children who have read the book more than once will have fun answering the questions as they learn to identify the equipment. They may also have a fun time pointing some of it out later in the garage or around construction sites. This is a fun book to keep in the diaper bag next to the toy trucks!
