Take young readers on a rhyming journey with engineer Yvonne Ng's (The Mighty Steam Engine) picture book about what it takes to build a road.

A boy walks home one day, only to find his street under construction! As he enjoys watching the excavators, bulldozers, dump trucks, pavers, and more, he gets a sense of the building process from start to finish. From blueprints to demolition to fresh, new asphalt, friendly, bright illustrations by Richard Smythe show the construction machines and workers up close.

A fun read-aloud for budding builders and fans of mighty machines, this is a perfect picture book to support STEAM lessons in preschool and kindergarten.

Yvonne Ng has been curious about how things work throughout her career, which includes a master's degree in mechanical engineering and years of working as an automation engineer. In addition to writing children's books, she develops STEM-related toys. She lives with her husband and son in Minneapolis, MN. Richard Smythe has been drawing since he was a child--first on his bedroom walls, then on his sister's homework! After honing his skills with an art degree, he has illustrated several picture books including Watersong, which was named a 2018 Notable Poetry Book by the NCTE.
