Preschool Books About Construction

Preschool Books About Construction

As I said in my post, Preschool Books About Transportation, kids love cars and trucks and things that go. This is especially true of BIG vehicles like bulldozers, dump trucks, and cranes. There’s something fascinating to them about machines that can be used to make things or tear them down.

In light of the recent birth of Princess Charlotte in London, I thought I’d post for you a complete list of the kings and queens of England. (Many blessings to the royal family. )

The history of these monarchs goes back to the 8th century and continues through today.
