This is a very cute book. We have the original construction site book. We love the rhyming on every page! Really high quality illustrations. Bought this for my 4 yr old son and 2 yr old daughter to share and enjoy this Holiday. The story line does NOT include anything about Santa which was important to me. Its just about the giving!
It's adorable how much not only my almost-2-year-old son loves these books, but our whole family! We have the board book of Good Night, Good Night Construction Site, the hardback Mighty, Mighty Construction Site, the way-too-cute stuffed Excavator, and now this! And it's as charming and fun to read as the others. Each construction vehicle finds a gift just for them which makes their Christmas very special after working so hard to get a new "home" for the fire trucks built by Christmas Eve. Highly recommend! This author and illustrator duo is great!

I got this for my 2-year-old nephew (now three), and he asks for it to be read constantly. He is an avid "reader" and has about 200 books to choose from, and chooses this series over and over. I've gotten him all three, and they are one of his favorites. And I actually like reading them to him, too, which is a big plus. I'm impressed by many of the books, but some are really lame and phoning it in. Since "again" is the favorite word of all my nieces and nephews, you know you're going to be reading it a lot. I appreciate the ones that are easy on me as well. It also helps that the drawings are great, and look just like all his toys--and the real thing in the new building going up near me that we facetime about several times a week.

I got this last year for my then 3-year-old, construction-obsessed boy and he loves it still, a year later. I put it away after Christmas and pulled it out again after Halloween to read for the season this year. This is actually one of my all-time favorite children’s books. I choose it for our reading time even more often than my son does! So essentially we read it every day and it doesn’t get tiresome at all. It is a fun story that progresses through the building of the site (you do have to suspend believe since they build the whole thing in a day, but hey, it’s fiction), the rhymes are fun and roll off the tongue while at the same time it’s easy to follow the story. The rhymes don’t get in the way at all. The illustrations are charming, and the ending is fun and sweet. This book hits it out of the park for children and the adults who read it to them. It also has a strong “book smell” because of all the ink on the pages, so that’s a bonus! We love “book smell,” lol.

My son is almost two and love the Construction Site books. We have the other two, but this one was not very good. I would pass. There really isn't reference to Christmas, a tree, Jesus, Santa, nothing....they get gifts for their worn out parts but that's it.
