Book Review: Big Wheels by Anne Rockwell
Construction books are fascinating for 2 and 3-year-olds. They show how everything works. My son (2) is in love with Big Wheels by Anne Rockwell. He is a frequent visiter of construction sites and a relative expert on "BIG TRUCKS." Rockwell uses illustrations to demonstrate the job of each construction vehicle in bright colors. She adds an element of whimsy by using pigs as the people who drive these trucks. The text is simple and is printed on white space left at the bottom of the illustrations.
If you are looking for even more construction books (and if you have a toddler, I know you are) try: Easy street by Rita Gray; Dig, Dig, Digging by Margeret Mayo; or Curious George and the Dump Truck by Margret and H.A. Rey.
