" I was impressed with this book. It rhymes, which usually doesn't go well in children's books, but this one is perfect! The meter and rhyme are good, and there are fun sound effects that my son loves. The pictures are nice too. I love it when I stumble upon a high-quality board book; there is a lot of mediocrity out there. " said.

" I found this on my co-workers desk and was intrigued. As a Landscape Architect for NYS Department of Transportation, I was impressed that they included the entire construction process. There is a page for the signing crew, the utility crew, and.....even the landscaping. The text is lacking but I typically fill in more details where the book leaves of anyway. " said.

" Definitely one of my son's favorite books due the the awesome use onomatopoeia. He could care less about the pictures and instead dances to words like "Bump, Whump, Whomp" and "Screech, Boom, Whoosh." The road near us has been under contruction for the last four years and so he can relate to the book. " said.

" This is a great new picture book about an old topic. I could see using this for storytime and in a music and movement capacity. It is perfect for promoting phonological awareness. Multiple sound words create a vivid auditory picture. The rhyme and rhythm of the text is wonderful; offering an exciting addition to storytime or a rhythmic addition to a music and movement storytime! " said.

" Walt loves the couplets and has the first few memorized already. I'm with his Nana in wondering why a small child needs to know the minute details of how a road is made, but Walt clearly feels the correct level of information is being provided, and at the end of the day, that's good enough for me. We've read Plan the Road almost daily for weeks now and both still enjoy it. " said.

" My kid loves this book - we got it from the library and read it about 50 times this week!! He is obsessed with trucks and cars (and really anything with wheels) so he loves this. I live thy it actually tells a story - the whole road gets built a page at a time, while scanning really well and being fun to read, with good onomatopoeic words ending each page. My son is 18 months and my 3 month old nephew seemed to like the cadence of it being read too. " said.

" This is a great book for children who like cars and trucks, especially trucks. It has a wonderful variety and showcases their various uses, in this case, in the construction of a road. The illustrations are clean, colourful and effective. The rhymes are fun and engaging. I particularly like the inclusion of noise words, which make for a fun read. I can see this becoming one of my sons favourites. " said.

" My son loves this book. This frequently makes it to the bedtime reading selection. We've had it for a while, but I always forget to add it to my list. The rhymes are fun and it's a good explanation of the road construction process (so says the civil engineer) for the younger audience. If you want to get a kid interested in engineering, this isn't a bad place to start. Definitely a good book for the kid who loves 'struction, as my son does. " said.
