Reviews - What do customers think about Construction Trucks (Reading Railroad)?
Great idea, details aren't accurate Jan 12, 2008
Just a note that everything in this book is a "truck" - my 3 year old knows better. The pictures and idea of the book are great, but it was obviously either written by someone that does not have a feel for the details or it was dumbed down for the audience. There are better books out there for the 3 year old audience presenting the material accurately yet at the proper level.
great book Jan 8, 2008
Great book. Very realistic pictures. My son loves it and has read it everyday since he got it.
Great Book! Oct 17, 2006
My son is only 20 months old and just LOVES this book! The details in the drawings are so realistic. And it's great that they have both men and women working at construction sites! Too bad it doesn't come in hardcover, as this is a nightly read before bed and that has taken its toll on the paper pages.
Details for an Insatiable Toddler Oct 8, 2005
I bought this book for my son shortly after his second birthday almost six months ago, and we STILL read it almost every night. Construction equipment is a source of endless fascination for him, and this book has satisfied some of his need for details about what certain pieces of equipment do. He seems to like this book in particular because the drawings are realistic -- he doesn't like the cartoony-drawings in some other books because they don't look like the real trucks he sees in the world. He also seems to like the more sophisticated language in the book, and amazes friends and relations with tales about tree spades, foundations, concrete mixers and pumps, and "jumping" cranes.
Great book for boys & girls Sep 8, 2005
We've had this book since my twins were 2 years old. They both love it. The illustrations are colorful while being realistic; they're actually *better* than photos, because the artist can juxtapose several different trucks in one picture, which would be hard to do with a posed photo.
The book addresses suburban house construction, roads, and city demolition and building.
