Praise

★ ”This is a gorgeous, respectful tribute, expressed in jaunty rhymes that read well, to the dignity and beauty of industry and the pride and pleasure derived from doing one’s best . . . Marvelous as a read-aloud and as a springboard to maker projects in classrooms and libraries.” —Kirkus, starred review

“Wheeler makes her points clearly in rhyming stanzas that read aloud effortlessly. The rhythm of the verses changes from fluid lines about thecreative planners to shorter, more forceful phrases describing the builders. Using acrylics and colored pencils, Long offers a broad array of beautifully composed, colorful scenes.” —Booklist

“Young children will enjoy the details shown in the illustrations and the lyrical text. For older children, the book can be a great first title to read when beginning a study of the concept of labor. It also can be used as a mentor text for writing poetry. For everyone, it can help us remember to appreciate the many skilled people across a wide variety of trades who make the things we enjoy.” —School Library Connection
