The Early Buzz About the Book

“This may very well be the most beautiful construction book on the market – definitely the best I’ve ever seen on the subject.  Sing-Along Construction Song has gorgeous watercolor illustrations and the rhymes are quite obviously very well thought out. This book makes the PERFECT read-aloud for an all-age group and isn’t just a “boy book”. ~ 5 Star Review, Jenny, Amazon


***My Personal Review***

 This is a great book for little kids - I think boys would like it more because of the theme but it is so cute that a lot of girls would be interested as well :)  The author tells the story of the construction vehicles to the tune of "All Around the Mulberry Bush" and so you can either just read it or you can sing it to your own music!  My daughter loved it, she loves music so having mommy sing her a book was absolutely awesome to her.  Not only does it tell the story through song, but the ebook also comes with an audio download to help you sing it!  The story explains what each vehicle does in the construction process, like a dump truck and a crane - and the story is put into little "dirt boxes" to make it look like they are surrounded by the dirt.  SUPER CUTE!  The illustrator has done a superb job with this book, the vehicles are not just sedentary vehicles, but they have eyes and are literally brought to life on the page for kids.  So when they are reading it they actually get the sense that the vehicle characters are actually the ones singing the words.  Every page was a whole page of illustration, not just a certain portion or certain pages - so the illustrations were just as much a part of this book as the story itself.  They are very nice, look kind of like watercolor but much more in-depth.  I have to give this book 5 stars, I would give it 10 if I could!  It was such a great and cute read, perfect for 1-5 year olds :)


About the Author: Louise Lintvelt

I am from South Africa and I live in a city called Pretoria. I am a Chemical Engineer by day and a children’s book writer by night. I am married to a wonderful man and we have a beautiful two year old daughter called Allegra. I love writing stories for my daughter, who is a constant inspiration.
Louise LintveltI have always loved reading. My childhood was filled with books and you would often find me crouched the corner of my room devouring the pages of my favourite book. I lived for Tuesday mornings as this would bring with it the excitement of a trip to the local library for story hour and the opportunity to take home a new book. I was the local librarian’s worst nightmare. I would arrive a few minutes early to check that she had not mistakenly chosen a book that had already been read in story hour.
I was a very bossy three year old with an insatiable appetite for books! This has not really changed much in the last twenty seven years. Dr. Seuss was my absolute favourite and to say that my copy of One, Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish Blue Fish was well read would be an understatement.
When it comes to writing, my daughter is my biggest inspiration. I love seeing her face light up with excitement when we sit down to read a book before bedtime. My daughter was fascinated by giraffes after we went on a safari trip in late 2012. This planted the seed for my picture book called How Andrew Got His Spots which is a rhyming adaptation of a story I originally wrote in the third grade. My daughter has since grown into a healthy two year old with a passion for aircraft which was the inspiration for writing Goodnight, Sleep Tight, What a Wonderful Flight.
I am sure that there are many parents in the world (myself included), who are quite decidedly sick and tired of reading the same favourite picture book night after night. I believe that the words of Oscar Wilde best describe how children should feel about picture books when he said, If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all.
Happy Reading!
