Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
An interactive reader experience that poses the question: which machine is best for the job? Children love machines! Especially big ones! Big ones in the dirt! Construction Machines is a new take on the world of big machines. It looks at a specific job that needs doing, then provides information on the right machine to do it, whether a digger, steam roller, excavator, loader or bulldozer. The book includes sections on quarrying stone, laying a road, building a skyscraper, digging a tunnel, and demolishing a building. Each section begins with a construction scene and asks "what sort of big machines can get this job done?" A sidebar gives the reader different machine options and subsequent spreads take a detailed look at the amazing machines that are up to the challenge. Accessible text gives the key characteristics of favorite machines and colorful sidebar boxes give each machine's vital statistics.
