About this product
- DescriptionA boisterous picture book full of isy fun for machine-mad kids. Roadworks is made with machine-mad pre-school boys in mind, though girls will also love the exciting ise-words, rhythms and rhymes. Roadworks aims to differ from other machine books in that it shows an actual project being completed from start to finish, in this case, the building of a road.
