      The boy I nanny I like all the equipment The boss seems mean Hahah

    2. Jason on said:

      The clearly computer drawn illustrations were too fake looking The people were rendered especially unpleasantly No disrespect to the creator, just my taste.

    3. Melissa on said:

      OK illustrations, basic construction equipment descriptions in the text Nice touch to have the boss be African American and the crew be white My favorite detail is at the end The boss brings his family to the park and playground that he and his crew created.

    4. Donna Mork on said:

      Boss gives commands and different construction vehicles do the work In the end, job done, a nice park is made, and they move on to the next job site.

      If your kid is into construction they ll like this but otherwise the story probably won t captivate them That being said, we ve read this a billion times.

    6. Jennifer Heise on said:

      A simple text in which all the major construction equipment in turn is ordered to do something, and does it, under the direction of Boss Boss says, Dig a hole And the excavator tips its bucket and starts to dig.The simple two part repetition would be good for the 2.5 3 year old construction fan The simple clear, realistic, brightly colored computer rendered illustrations will also work with a younger age group, though my five year old likes the book too I think younger readers might actually lik [...]

      Since August of 2010 we ve been watching and listening to the nearby elementary school being rebuilt from the ground up First came the demolition crew Then came the diggers and the cement trucks Now they are framing the buildings and it s really starting to take a recognizable shape.With all this on going construction, my children have gotten interested in reading books on the subject A new one published last year is Job Site by Nathan Clement.The book follows the process of a the foreman or as [...]

      Job Site by Nathan Clement should please young boys who can t get enough of construction equipment in action The text follows the Boss, who instructs the crew what to do on the job site Clement is succinct, with equipment being named and action described The equipment involved includes a bulldozer, excavator, loader, dump truck, compactor, cement mixer and crane.Clement s illustrations begin as pencil drawings before they are computer rendered into striking images The illustrations steal the sho [...]

      What kid can resist the thunderous roar of big machinery at work Nathan Clement provides a big, splashy graphic layout that matches the big action of a bulldozer, excavator, loader and other machinery found at a job site When the boss says Level that pile we can envision the rumble and scraping as the bulldozer s blade smoothes out the pile of gravel At each pointed directive of the boss, a machine meets the demand and so goes this story of getting the construction job done.Job Site is almost li [...]

      Clement, N 2011 Job site Honesdale, Pa Boyds Mills Press.PreK Big and shiny equipment are ready for the job Digging, lifting, carrying, dumping, moving, and shaping are very important to getting a job finished This book is an exciting book for the boss He directs the equipment on what they need to do and the equipment gets the job done What is the job they just accomplished You ll have to read to find out This book would be a great book to read right before center time An activity I would do wit [...]

      It s early morning on another construction job, and the boss gives directions to the drivers who operate heavy machinery such as a bulldozer, an excavator, a loader, a dump truck, a compactor, a mixer, and a crane The first double page spread shows the boss providing simple instructions, and the next pages follow with the actions of the machines As large as these trucks may be, they are dwarfed by the enormity of the job they have completed a small pond with a spouting water fountain and places [...]

      Grades PS 1 Simple text combines with energetic computer generated artwork to take readers from the beginning to the end of a construction job In rhythmic fashion, Boss says what the next step in the process is and the equipment operators follow orders, slowly building something from nothing The final two page spread shows families walking around enjoying the finished park that has been created Kids who can t get enough of bulldozers and front loaders and cement mixers will be fully engaged.

    14. Asho on said:

      I read this book with my son a week or so ago and had to page back through it because I couldn t remember much of anything about it So, it s not a particularly interesting or memorable book I can see how the repetition of Boss says could be appealing to children, although the tasks could be described dynamically The computer illustrated graphics illustrations are relatively unique for the picture book world at least, in my admittedly somewhat limited experience of it so far , but are not really [...]

    15. Deb (Readerbuzz) Nance on said:

      Author illustrator Nathan Clement depicts dramatic scenes from the work world of a construction site, zooming in on the directions of a boss and the workmen operating the machines Then the boss signals that the job is complete and the machines and workmen drive away, leaving the reader to see the beautiful park that has been created Boss says, Pour a slab And the mixer swing its trough and pours cement I especially enjoyed seeing, in the last panel, a family walking around the park, adults holdi [...]

      Children always seem to love stories about giant construction machines This board book shows what each one does and tells the name of each piece of equipment At the end, you get to see what the construction equipment built I ll add it to our library s board book collection you can never have too many vehicle books

    17. Betsy on said:

      most stories about construction are basic, building, shovels, dirt etc.but if your wee one likes to read about constructionthis is a great book uses construction language and is a good story.

    18. Adrienne on said:

      My kids LOVE this book we ve read it at least 20 times in the past 2 days It s fun to see the different construction vehicles, as well as to finally see what it is they ve been working on building.

    19. Rachael on said:

      Interesting perspectives for the artwork I think an older child would like it better than my toddler, who did enjoy it but is so young that he prefers traditional straight on depictions of his beloved construction vehicles.

    20. Jenna on said:

      This is a great book to explain the construction job I could see this being used in a classroom when they are discovering community and the types of jobs within It is blunt, but really explains and shows with images the job of a construction company.

    21. Samantha on said:

      Good picture book to recommend to little boys who love machines used in construction The art is amazing, the story is simple, and the end is satisfying in that all of the boss s instructions for the different machines completed a really cool project

    22. Stephani on said:

      The illustrations are only so so, and teh story is a bit blah, but my 2.5 year old son loves this book If you have a boy who likes big machines, pick this up I would not suggest this for a storytime.

    23. Emily Hens on said:

      This book brought in new words that could used to develop vocabulary and build students understanding of what a job site is and what people do

    24. Shelley on said:

      This is a good book to use to teach ESOL students about construction, because it uses basic language that is specific, as well as illistrations.

    25. Laura Salas on said:

      I loved how this very short picture book shows how a lot of construction equipment works in a clear way It s a nice companion to the many cute construction books.

    26. Hannah on said:

      Excellent book Love how the boss is telling the employees what to do on the construction site

    27. Tricia on said:

      Illustrations and basic text show parts of a park being built, resulting in the finished product Computer rendered illustrations are crisp and bold.
