I don’t know about your neighborhood, but in our town, summer means construction. If you have a kid of any age who can spend hours on the sidewalk watching diggers load dump trucks and cement mixers pour foundations, check out this book called A Year at a Construction Site by Nicholas Harris.

This paperback combines the best of look and find books in a calendar setting. It follows a school construction project throughout the year of building, from demolition to paving the streets. Each page spread has a few optional things to spot. So you can read the book, practice the months of the year, or just look for the hidden items in a construction themed book.

Each page spread features a different stage of construction.

If your child prefers other entertainment, you can also get books in the same format featuring airports, cities, zoos, castles, pirates, and farms. No matter which theme you choose to enjoy, it can last for years to come for your little enthusiast.
