The infectious rhythm of this rhyming picture book is matched by the wide appeal of its theme as an array of equipment and tools and workers are featured in the construction of a new building. “Build the frame. Build the frame. Hammer all day long. Make the stairs and floors and walls. Bing! Bang! Bong!” From the first pilings going into the ground to the framing, roofing, pipes, and paint, the project is described in broad but wonderfully appealing strokes. It all culminates with the opening of a new library: “Choose your books. Choose your books. Borrow all you need. The library’s here for everyone. Ready…Steady…Read!” (Ages 2–5)
