A beautifully illustrated book for babies featuring lots of noisy diggers working together on a very busy building site.

Turn the pages and lift the flaps to watch the big-wheeled digger shovel and scoop up the rubble with its big metal bucket, see how the long-armed crane stretches up high with a very heavy load, and watch the road roller chug slowly along to flatten the ground. With busy vehicles pushing, pulling, tipping, rumbling, chugging, scooping, and beeping, little ones will love learning about what happens on the building site, and joining in to make the noisy digger sounds.

This hard-wearing board book has large flaps for babies and toddlers to lift and sturdy pages for little ones who are beginning to turn the pages. They'll reveal the busy diggers doing different jobs and working hard to build a shiny new house! The short text is fun to read aloud and share with toddlers, while labels develop vocabulary and help little ones to learn the names of all their favorite diggers and trucks.

JONNY LAMBERT'S CONSTRUCTION SITE tells the story of how a house is made, with a focus on the many trucks that are involved. The book features many large flaps to lift as it goes through the process of house construction. The last page spread features all the construction trucks from the book with their names again (there are nine of them!). The illustrations feature Lambert's usual style with many bright colors and appearing textures (images are flat but the colors are not).

The text gives not only the steps, but also the sounds made by the vehicles, such as "Rumble! Rumble!" for the bulldozer as it arrives and "Rattle! Rattle!" as the forklift carries a load of bricks.

What I loved: There is a lot to enjoy about this book, which is a huge hit at our house. The book shows the construction of a house through many steps, which are great for children to understand and follow. Toddlers love processes and order, and this book gives them in spades. The book also features a bunch of trucks, which children will enjoy naming. The addition of sounds for each truck also adds some fun that children will love to repeat.

The flaps are very sturdy and large, making them easy for little fingers to grasp and lift. The scenes are equally large, adding a great visual onto each scene. Parents will also enjoy the large and clear font used throughout that make it easy to read aloud. They (like me) might also learn about the names of certain trucks and what they are used for (such as a dumper, which I had not heard of before!). This kind of delightful learning experience is special to enjoy with little ones.

Final verdict: Sturdy and filled to the brim with colorful trucks, sequential actions, and delightful sounds, this lift-the-flap book is educationally fun. Highly recommend for toddlers and young readers.
