I have a nephew who was obsessed with “minna minnas,” also known as cement mixers, when he was about 2 years old. A book like Cement Mixers, by Dan Osier, would be a great one for kids with a similar interest. It’s written clearly, filled with great information, and has lots of photographs, too. That particular book is also part of a series called Construction Site; so, if your child really likes that book, he’d probably also enjoy others in that series.
If you’d like to start reading non-fiction books to your child but aren’t sure where to begin looking for ones he’ll enjoy, just stop by the library. Our librarians are always ready to help and would love to assist you in finding the perfect book to get started!
