Make a street, make a street, workers in a row. Make me a street for things that go. From the rocks to the sand to the sticky asphalt, lively read-aloud verse chronicles the step-by-step process by which a new street is created, with a warm, lyrical approach that's perfect for preschoolers. Detailed, three-dimensional art uses actual road-building materials such as sand and gravel to give the whole book an incredible, tactile quality, and an adorable road crew is on the job to pave the way for construction fun. An author's note includes additional details about road building and asphalt paving.

Picture books featuring trucks are a dime a dozen, but this one's a standout. The 3-D illustrations are great, the language and rhyme scheme work, and this is the only book that I've seen that clearly tells how a road gets paved in a completely entertaining way. Bravo! Read full review

Review: Easy Street

User Review  - Sam Wojtaszek - Goodreads

We still chant the little rhyme, "Roll it, roll it, wheels so fat, roll it down to make it flat!" I think I started reading this to you when you were barely two years old, and you have always loved it. Read full review
