Review: Up! Up! Up! Skyscraper by Anastasia Suen

Up! Up! Up! Skyscraper by Anastasia Suen. unpgd. Charlesbidge, May, 2017. 9781580897105. (Review from finished copy courtesy of publisher.)

Perky cartoon illustrations show a crew of a hard-hat-sporting group of kids getting a tour of a construction site. Each spread depicts a step from beginning to completion. The illustrations are labeled and there is a helpful cutaway thumbnail to enhance understanding at each step. There are two narratives at work here, jaunty couplets are paired with straight narrative. If you have a big machine enthusiast in your life, this is a must read. Reading it made me long for those days of reading similar books over and over with my own sons.
