Reviews

Sutton's latest is a truck-lover's dream come true-repetition, rhyme and onomatopoeia form the text, while construction trucks vie for readers' attention in the illustrations. The result is a wonderfully noisy look at how roads are built. ...The level of detail matches the text's intended audience --enough to satisfy, not so much as to overwhelm. Pave the way to this book's shelf; perfect for read-alouds, it will be a hit whether shared with a group or one-on-one. * Kirkus Reviews *
