CONSTRUCTION KITTIES

Age Range: 2 - 5

KIRKUS REVIEW

Who's ready for a day of work in the sun? Construction Kitties!

"The sun is up. Time for work. Construction Kitties grab their hats." Four kitties of various shades don their construction hats (one of which is pink) and head off for the construction site. "Into the dump truck. Onto the backhoe. Move that dirt!" They work until the sun is high, and then they break for lunch. With full tummies they rest, and then it's back to work. "Into the grader. Onto the roller. Smooth that dirt!" When the sun is low, their project is done. Construction Kitties have built a playground! They hop in their trucks and head out over the long highways home. "Construction Kitties purr and sing to the music. Soon it will be time to play!" Though Sturges' text is a little flat, young construction-machine fans can’t but love seeing their favorite machines in action. Halpern lends her signature bright, blocky and perky heavy-lined, full-bleed illustrations to the package.

A good addition to construction-machine collections everywhere. (Picture book. 2-5)
