Book Sharing Monday - Harry Builds a House by Derek Radford.

An old family favourite, passed on to us from friends around 12 years ago.
L ( now nearly 15 years ) loved this and had anyone and everyone who visited us for any length of time read it to him at least once.

The pictures are fab, I mean who couldn't love a team of hippos building a house ? The information is great - ceiling joists, electric wires, screw plugs, it's all here.

Then there are the big guns - the diggers, the loaders .. oh my !

We all use to know this by heart but I have to admit after afew years of being neglected on the book case, we are all alittle patchy, not for much longer I feel, O is definitely a Harry builds a House type of kid.

That does look like a book a lot of boys would like. I hate to sound sexist, but I nannied for a long time and no girls ever loved digger trucks quite like the boys did!!
