Title: Easy Street
Author: Rita Gray
Make a street, make a street, workers in a row.
Make me a street for things that go.
From the rocks to the sand to the sticky asphalt, lively read-aloud verse chronicles the step-by-step process by which a new street is created, with a warm, lyrical approach that’s perfect for preschoolers. Detailed, threedimensional art uses actual road-building materials such as sand and gravel to give the whole book an incredible, tactile quality, and an adorable road crew is on the job to pave the way for construction fun. An author’s note includes additional details about road building and asphalt paving.
