"A picture book custom-built for construction-site-obsessed tots . . . Guest's rhyming text imagines a workforce of toddlers heading out to work at a construction site. Nakata's cherubic, pudgy, diverse cast of characters is clearly up for the job . . . A dream-come-true building book for babes in arms." —Kirkus
