This title offers a new perspective on the long-time favorite topic of construction sites. Building a house requires the talents of many different tradespeople. That is why the various professions at work at a construction site are featured in this volume: excavation operators, masons, electricians and painters – all of these are introduced, along with their tasks and tools of their trade. What does a roofer need to pay attention to? How does the crane operator get into the driver’s cabin? In each case, children can look over their shoulders and see what each person is doing.
