Sing-a-Long Construction Song - Win

I am so pleased to be joining in a Book Review Blitz for the newly-released picture book “Sing-Along Construction Song” by Louise Lintvelt . This is an absolutely delightful new book by the author of “Goodnight, Sleep Tight: Have a Wonderful Flight” and “How Andrew Got His Spots”, both of which I reviewed during the summer, and which my kids thoroughly enjoyed.

What People are Saying

“This may very well be the most beautiful construction book on the market – definitely the best I’ve ever seen on the subject.  Sing-Along Construction Song has gorgeous watercolour illustrations and the rhymes are quite obviously very well thought out. This book makes the PERFECT read-aloud for an all-age group and isn’t just a “boy book”. ~ 5 Star Review, Jenny, Amazon

My Review

I knew from reading her previous books that we were in for a treat when I was asked to review "Sing-a-Long Construction Song" - and I was not wrong! It's another winner for Louise Lintvelt.

The book is a magical blend of sing-song rhymes, appealing characters and the most beautiful watercolour illustrations. My kids loved joining in with the construction song, which was set to a well-known tune and had very easy, catchy words. The free download was a huge hit too. Great for boys and girls alike - a fabulous read-aloud.

About the Author: Louise Lintvelt

Louise Lintvelt

I am from South Africa and I live in a city called Pretoria. I am a Chemical Engineer by day and a children’s book writer by night. I am married to a wonderful man and we have a beautiful two year old daughter called Allegra. I love writing stories for my daughter, who is a constant inspiration.
I have always loved reading. My childhood was filled with books and you would often find me crouched the corner of my room devouring the pages of my favourite book. I lived for Tuesday mornings as this would bring with it the excitement of a trip to the local library for story hour and the opportunity to take home a new book. I was the local librarian’s worst nightmare. I would arrive a few minutes early to check that she had not mistakenly chosen a book that had already been read in story hour.

I was a very bossy three year old with an insatiable appetite for books! This has not really changed much in the last twenty seven years. Dr. Seuss was my absolute favourite and to say that my copy of One, Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish Blue Fish was well read would be an understatement.

When it comes to writing, my daughter is my biggest inspiration. I love seeing her face light up with excitement when we sit down to read a book before bedtime. My daughter was fascinated by giraffes after we went on a safari trip in late 2012. This planted the seed for my picture book called How Andrew Got His Spots which is a rhyming adaptation of a story I originally wrote in the third grade. My daughter has since grown into a healthy two year old with a passion for aircraft which was the inspiration for writing Goodnight, Sleep Tight, What a Wonderful Flight.

I am sure that there are many parents in the world (myself included), who are quite decidedly sick and tired of reading the same favourite picture book night after night. I believe that the words of Oscar Wilde best describe how children should feel about picture books when he said, If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all.
Happy Reading!
