More About Construction Site: Farming Strong, All Year Long: There's work to do! No time to waste! All year the farm's a busy place! Six hardworking trucks—with help from brand-new farm vehicles—have work to do in each of the seasons: planting in spring, building a barn in the summer, harvesting in fall, and finally tucking the animals in for a cozy winter. Construction enthusiasts will love this look at a farm through the year, and all the rough, tough work there is to do! Just right for teaching early concepts such as weather or seasons, this picture book invites little readers to experience adventure on the farm every day of the year. From learning about nature and growing food to watching the construction crew tuck the animals into their new barn, there's so much to see and do on the farm! Sherri Duskey Rinker and AG Ford, the author-illustrator team behind the many bestselling Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site books, bring their playful rhyming text and vibrant illustrations to another exciting tale of teamwork, sure to delight little construction fans everywhere.

Kirkus Reviews says “Ford’s carefully composed illustrations use color to lovely effect, employing verdant hues for spring and golden yellows for summer. Truck enthusiasts will step right up for this next installment, and urban tots will glimpse a whole new world.”
