Our road construction unit has been a fun, high-interest theme. But any construction theme is typically high interest. Here are some of our favorite construction books, featuring road construction books and including construction books of all kinds.

Favorite Books for a Construction Theme

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links (at no cost to you).

Just choose books based on your child’s age and what you think will engage your child’s interest. I recommend checking out the “Look Inside the Book” feature on Amazon and reading reviews there. Another place to learn about a book is on YouTube. You can typically see the entire book there.

Montessori-friendly books use photos or realistic illustrations. They don’t have talking animals or a lot of fantasy. But many books that have fantasy and talking animals are wonderful books, and I love sharing them with children who understand the difference between fantasy and reality.

For toddlers and preschoolers, about ¾ of the books I use are typically Montessori friendly (focusing on reality without smiling or talking animals or smiling or talking vehicles). 

Books for a Construction Theme

I’m featuring books here for a construction theme mainly for preschool through elementary-age kids. The books on our forward-facing shelf are all Montessori-friendly books.
