A Hole in the Road Reviews
Short nonfiction picture book about fixing a hole in the road. Identifies all the different types of trucks and equipment used. Perfect for the vehicle-obsessed child. Also makes a good early reader due to simple sentences, word repetition, and strong visual support for the text.
The pictures are lovely in this illustrated guide to the repair of a pothole. There isn’t much story, but young children who like to watch construction workers and road crews probably would appreciate this slim volume.
A good picture book for kids that like construction. Lots of colourful vehicles and good descriptions of what they do.
Synopsis: "Yikes! Look at that huge hole in the road! How will the cars get through? But wait . . . here comes the road crew with their bright orange cones. With their jackhammers, they break up the old pavement. Now it’s time for the big diggers to scoop up the rubble and for the dump trucks to take it away. Rumble, rumble — down goes the new asphalt — swoosh! — the roller makes it flat. The intriguing process of road repair, and the job done by each exciting machine, is explained in simple, child-friendly language that’s fun to read aloud."My Review: Munchkin picked this book out at the bookstore, he really loves trucks and loaders. I figured it would be a fun book with the upcoming construction season. Unfortunately, it appears that my little two year old knows more about the equipment than the author did, as I was reading the book he would correct me with the names of the various trucks. It is an easy read and would be enjoyed by a child who was not so obsessed with construction equipment.
H really likes this book and I feel like we've read it a million times. There are really many other books about road construction that are better than this one. The biggest issue I have is that every image is from the same perspective and as a result it is hard to see what the workers are doing... The road already looks flat when the steam roller rolls over it for example. I feel like I have to try to compensate for this each time we read it.
Another good choice for big machine/construction mad preschoolers. Clear illustrations with just enough details to add interest and one line of text per page--simple enough for a toddler, but still appealing to an older child.
An extremely basic walk-through of the road construction process with a visual emphasis of the vehicles used. Fascinating to young vehicle lovers everywhere.
Colorful illustrations that tell about a hole in the road being fixed and with an assortment of machinery
I don't totally love reading this book, but of course since it has to do with construction, my boys love it.
