Following their rhythmic hits "Roadwork" and "Demolition," Sutton and Lovelock have returned with a new combination of dynamic text and colourful illustrations for little builders.

From breaking ground to the the final coat of paint, "Construction" describes workers erecting a new mystery building from the ground up. As usual, Sutton’s words briskly pulsate: “Dig the ground. Dig the ground. Bore down in the mud” and fun, read-aloud onomatopoeia rounds out each stanza: "Slip! SLAP! THUD!” Bold pictures convey the effort and the machinery required to lift stacks of lumber and position sheets of glass. Lovelock shows people of all demographics working on the site and she changes perspective constantly, allowing readers to look down from above the scene or to crouch low to look up at the machines.

The rhymes of "Construction" may not sound quite as smooth as those of its predecessors but the book has a satisfying ending: the reveal of a library..."Ready…STEADY…READ!”
