Part of the Preschool Pop-Ups series, The House That Mack Built by Susanna Leonard Hill, illus. by Ken Wilson-Max, uses the classic cumulative tale to showcase the machines and people required to erect a home (""This is the cement mixer churning around/ That poured the foundation into the ground""). Pop-up construction vehicles in bright yellows and reds form the centerpiece of the full-bleed spreads printed on sturdy laminated cardboard pages.
