Someone Builds the Dream [hc]
Written by Lisa Wheeler & illustrated by Loren Long [Ohio]
All across this great big world, jobs are getting done
by many hands in many lands. It takes much more than ONE.
This picture book is an eye-opening exploration of the many types of work that go into building our world- from the making of a bridge to a wind farm, an amusement park, and even the picture books that you read. An architect may dream up the plans for a house, but someone has to actually work the saws and pound the nails. This book is a thank-you to the skilled women and men who work tirelessly to see our dreams brought to life. 48 pages
"A loving ode to folks who get their hands dirty doing nitty-gritty jobs... Marvelous as a read-aloud and as a springboard to maker projects in classrooms and libraries." -Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review (Ages 4-8)
