Construction Countdown by K.C. Olson, illus. by David Gordon, is the author's first book, a rhymed counting book that looks at construction vehicles hard at work, beginning with 10 and working down to one clever, surprising twist: ""Two skid loaders, with lots of loads to haul/ and one gigantic sandbox with room to drive them all!"" Gordon's fantastic, digitally created illustrations imbue the scenes with gritty and dramatic realism.
