I have a son who thinks construction vehicles are pretty awesome. To make this post even more authentic, I will post a picture of him on a stray excavator we found by the side of the road two weeks ago. :)
Of all the construction vehicles, excavators are definitely his favorite (and he will correct you if you call it a "digger.") He also loves to sing along to Blippi's "Excavator" & "Tractor" songs.
Without further ado, here are our top 12 favorite picture books!
1. Dig, Dogs, Dig! A Construction Tail
by: James Horvath
The rhyming about construction work in this book will have you hooked on the construction project these hardworking dogs are completing.
2. Backhoe Joe!
by: Lori Alexander
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to find a stray backhoe in the road & take it home as a pet? This is an adorable, feel-good story about the cutest little boy with that ambition.
3. Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site
by: Sherri Duskey Rinky
Even construction vehicles need a good night's sleep! This one is pretty cute with the sound bar too.
