Demolition by Sally Sutton, illustrated by Brian Lovelock (Candlewick, 2012).
A new construction, or ahem, demolition picture book for 2012.
Swing the ball. Swing the ball.
Thump and smash and whack.
Bring the top floors tumbling down.
Bang! CLANG! CRACK!
The rhymes are catchy. The artwork is appealing. There are women construction workers out there with the men. There’s a lot of recycling of building materials going on. But most importantly… there is a lot of big ol’ machinery getting the job done.
