Parents and children alike will want to read these books over and over again. The beautifully illustrated children’s books by Rose Ann Woolpert tell the stories of how some of California’s first roads and homes were built, including the trucks, trains and people who did the hard work starting in the early 1900s.

The “nearly true” historic tales about the construction industry are sure to capture your little one’s attention as the pages are filled with trucks and trains delivering rock to construction sites to build

Friendship and hard work also are part of the theme in these entertaining and educational books.

The historic photos mixed with modern illustrations are sure to be a hit with your family!
