Ultimate Spotlight Home Construction -- Book Review


Disclosure: I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

Kids are always so interested in construction. The big trucks and bulldozers are exciting. It is fun to watch as a building goes up. Kids also love books with flaps, pull-tabs and more. Today I am sharing a book that combines these two. The book is Ultimate Spotlight: Home Construction by Anne Blanchard and illustrated by Didier Balicevic. It is coming out today and is recommended for ages 5+.

From the Publisher:

Brick by brick, a house gets built! Lift the flaps to lay the foundation, pull the tab to install a window, and turn the wheel to lay the floor tiles. Moveable parts on every spread and age-appropriate text provide an interactive and engaging introduction to building a new home.

•Flaps! Pull-tabs! Pop-ups! Lots of interactive and moveable parts
•Detailed illustrations that beg to be pored over again and again
•Educational content reviewed by an expert

Fans of Ultimate Spotlight Home Construction will also enjoy the interactive learning of other books in the Ultimate Spotlight series, including Cars, Caring for Earth, Extraordinary Animals, Volcanoes, Polar Animals, Rain Forest Animals, Savanna Animals, Dinosaurs, Firefighters, Trains, and Astronauts.

• Great family and classroom read-aloud book
• Books for 5 and up
• Books for kindergarten and early elementary school students

From Me:

This book begins with breaking ground and the architect. It goes through every stage of building a house. Kids will love the flaps and pull-tabs as well as the big machines. I love the details in the book. It goes through so many different steps that are required to build safely. It includes things like hard hats and more. It shares about measuring for windows and having the plumbers and electricians come to make sure the work is done correctly. It shares about laying the floor as well as the landscaping. This book has every part of building a house and kids are going to love it!

This book is perfect for the kid who loves construction or for the family building their own house. It is the type of book a child will love to sit and read and play with for hours. Do you know someone who will want to read this book?
