BUILDERS & BREAKERS, by Steve Light, Candlewick Press




Experience the bustling energy of an urban construction site with Steve Light’s colorful celebration of builders, breakers, and the machines they use.

When their dad forgets his lunch box on his way to the construction site, a young brother and sister set out to take it to him, and along their way witness all the noisy, exciting action of a build site in the city. With builders building, breakers breaking, and a whole host of impressive machines and vehicles hard at work, this book bursts with color and offers children plenty to enjoy. In his trademark intricate style, Steve Light captures the satisfaction of working hard to create something new — and, of course, taking a well-deserved break.

I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

Fun and creative illustrations fill this basic picture book for first readers.

A wonderful concept introducing architecture, building cities/buildings and how it’s done. Lots of action, bright colors and an easy to follow plot are pulled together in an excellent book for little children just learning tense and word structures larger than four letters/five letters.

Great for ages six, seven and eight or those who struggle with word building, phonics and grammar.
