Where is it?
It's a quiet morning at the zoo, until some strange new creatures roll in--trucks and bulldozers and wrecking balls! They're tumbling, digging, and roaring alongside the animals. Giraffe, rhino, the monkeys, and the tigers watch the new creatures and, soon, are playing with their new friends. It's party time at the Construction Zoo! But...what happens when the construction is over? Will the party be over, too? The clever rhyming text and simple, bold art will appeal to both kids and their parents.

Booklist Review
This giddy pairing of zoo animals and construction equipment is a fun way to teach youngsters a whole slew of shapes. From the cover (showing a digger truck and an elephant saluting each other with upraised scooper and trunk) on, the simple lines of the bright digital illustrations underscore the shape similarities of two of kids' favorite things: exotic animals and construction vehicles. A zoo makeover gives occasion for the digger, cement truck, crane, and bulldozer to share the space with the zoo denizens. At first, the animals are curious but scared, but they soon learn to appreciate the trucks; and readers will love seeing animals and vehicles juxtaposed throughout. For example, the giraffe cranes his neck to greet the crane on the facing page, the rhino faces off against a bulldozer, and tiger cubs watch the cement truck spinning, its stripes resembling their own when they roll around in play. The rhyming text and use of vivid action words (tumbling, digging, smashing, etc.) make this a great read-aloud as well.--Connie Fletcher Copyright 2018 Booklist
