Demolition by Sally Sutton

Little boys love books about construction. It seems books with a steam shovel, bulldozer, or crane instantly gets you some crib cred and more than a few have risen to the top of The New York Times Best Seller list. But I couldn't help falling in love with Demolition by Sally Sutton.  It seems my 15-month old son, Connor, loves demolition even more than construction, so this book was a perfect recommendation by Miss Nancy at The Storybook Shoppe.

Page by page, Connor loves the catchy rhythm and repetition. It's hard not to feel like you are singing a song while reading.  Illustrations by Brian Lovelock delight with every turn. The O'Regan's particularly love this page with a reference to dinosaurs.

And after the Demolition crew has destroyed an old building, constructing an inviting playground will excite little ones!  We adore Sally Sutton, an Auckland, New Zealand playwright and children's author, who produced the award-wining picture book, Roadworks.

Do you have a little one that loves to destroy things almost more than he loves to build things? He sounds like my son, Connor.  And even my girlie-girl 4-year-old daughter is captivated by this one!
