Busy Snakes Build? Snakes on the Job by Kathryn Dennis

Who knew snakes build playgrounds?

OFF TO WORK THE SNAKES WILL GO.

Yessss! Snakes put on their hard hatssss and grab their sssshovelssss.

They take the wheelssss off their truckssss.

They steer backhoessss, climb into cranessss, and drive big bulldozerssss. They sssshift their gearssss, pull their leverssss and hit their brakessss.

They sssshovel the dirt up into dump truckssss.
A CRANE LIFTS LARGE OBJECTS AND SWINGS THEM INTO PLACE.

SNAKES SAY YESSSSSSSSSSSH!

Brought to you by the Letter S, just for toddlers and preschoolers who love big construction equipment, Kathryn Dennis' newest, Snakes on the Job (Feiwal and Friends, 2020), delivers the big machines they favor, illustrated in pastel profiles, all steered by cute snakes in yellow hard hats, busy on the construction ssssite of a brand-new playground. Playful artwork also shows the hard-working snakes disporting themselves at last in their new park--sssswinging, ssssee-sawing, and of course ssslipping down the new, slippery ssssliding boards. Simple text makes this book a choice for emergent readers, and for speech students, this story delivers plenty of practice on those sibillant syllables in spadessss.

Share this one with Dennis' previous busy serpent book, Snakes on a Train and the perennially best-selling Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site (Board Book for Toddlers, ChildrenÂ’s Board Book).
