The Road That Trucks Built by Susanna Leonard Hill, Illustrated by Erica Sirotich

Every 4-7 year old will delight in this picture book written by the one and only, Susanna Leonard Hill. Every little one will enjoy learning about the many trucks needed to build a new road. The story line is engaging, complete with short, rhyming sentences that will have kids asking to read the story again and again. The illustrations by Erica Sirotich are bright and colorful. There is much to like about this picture book; from the rotating cover, to the endpapers, to the eyes depicted on each piece of equipment to the guide that follows the story identifying the parts of a bulldozer, grader, paint maker, scraper, roller, and paver. A special book for boys and girls. I know my great-nephew, Zebadiah, and his parents will have fun with this book.

Be sure and check out Susana Leonard Hill on her Word Press site at Making Picture Book Magic.
