Job Site - Nathan Clement

Released March 2011

Boyds Mills Press

Reviewed by Bob Walch

Most children, especially little boys, find construction equipment fascinating. In this picture book Nathan Clement takes you to a construction site where various types of heavy equipment are hard at work. You’ll find big, bold illustrations of a bulldozer, excavator, front loader, gravel truck, rolling earth compressor, cement mixer and crane on the pages of this colorful book.

The brief text, one sentence per page, explains what each machine’s job is as the construction crew labors to create a lovely park with a pond in the middle.

Although Job Site is a simple picture book it will introduce  a youngster to some of the basic types of equipment that can be found on a construction site. After reading the book at home it might be fun to visit an actual site and see how many machines your child can identify.
