    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    After seeing the front cover illustration of The Construction Alphabet Book on Amazon, I knew that I’d not be disappointed with the interior images, and had to purchase this book. My three year old son is obsessed with digger machines, as well as all things construction and farm, and when book after book arrived from Amazon, for myself and my older child, he asked for his turn to receive a new “digger” book. Rob Bolster’s dump truck and excavator illustration caught my eye, and as we now have a huge library of construction books, I’ve become more choosey in the selection of new books. Exposing my children to literature and the arts is important to me; the illustrations that were created for this book are exceptional, accurate, and they capture the wonderful light and color of Edward Hooper. With so many poorly illustrated children’s books, even our little guy can point out the mistakes in some illustrations, equipment and even in the text of many books, this is a refreshing addition to our collection. Even for the less sophisticated art lover, the beautifully composed pictures of construction vehicles, that are so full of wonderful color and light, will capture your child’s attention as much as the subject and text. This will be a book that I will actually keep and enjoy long after the toddler obsession has moved onto something else. In the future, we will be looking for other books illustrated by Mr. Bolster and hope to meet him at a book signing!

    I purchased 3 copies of this book. My son and 2 nephews are construction crazed toddlers, and finding this book on Amazon made Christmas very merry. The illustrations are gorgeous, the language very informative, and entertaining as the author provides the sounds the equipment produces. If you want to provide a child with a realistic, educational look at the construction world along with alphabet reinforcement this book is sure to be hit.

    My boys love this book!, August 6, 2007

    My twin boys 3 yrs. old love this book. This is one of the books that gets chosen for bedtime reading every night and we have had it for about a year now. I could probably recite all the words without looking at the pages. That is how much we have read it.
