Let’s Meet a Construction Worker!
What do construction workers do? Some lucky kids are about to find out!
They visit Mr. Moore, a construction worker who’s helping to build a new school. He shows them machines that dig big holes. He explains how he follows the building plans. And he tells about different workers and how they stay safe.
Hooray for construction workers!
“Cartoon-style animated drawings in bright colors introduce diverse characters who will capture children’s interest.” —School Library Journal
“In each book introducing a community-benefiting career, schoolchildren meet one adult to learn about his or her job; information includes the training required to become a firefighter, doctor, etc., daily routines, and primary responsibilities. The content is inclusive and up-to-date but delivered though vapid stories. Peppy computer-generated cartoons are amateur.” – The Horn Book Guide

“Moran’s flailing, retro-pop cartoon characters are the lure to this fizzy but enlightening entry in the Community Helpers series….Zany to look at but pretty darn educational.” —Booklist
School Library Journal
“Cartoon-style animated drawings in bright colors introduce diverse characters who will capture children’s interest….Additional titles where more books on community helpers are needed.” —School Library Journal
