If your kid can’t get enough of diggers, dumpers, and other construction vehicles, check out The Construction Alphabet Book by Jerry Pallotta.
This book features a different construction vehicle for every letter of the alphabet. From aerial lifts to zippers, learn about all the different machines used in construction. Each letter corresponds to one item, with several sentences about its uses. Kids get great practice learning their letters and sounds, while also indulging their thirst for construction. Beautiful watercolor type illustrations cover each page, with the text overlaid.
When my kids were younger, I read the first one or two sentences on each page. Now that they’ve gotten bigger, we read the entire paragraphs with no problem. Don’t have a construction enthusiast? Jerry Pallotta has an entire series of alphabet books that feature the same letter per page format, including The Underwater Alphabet Book, The Icky Bug Alphabet Book, and The Dinosaur Alphabet Book, among many others.
