Send in the cranes! Bulldozers! Earthmovers! Would you like to watch how a building goes up? During the next twelve months, construction workers are building a school. Check out the eight action-packed scenes for a bird's-eye view of the whole process. See how the workers make the foundation, add the walls, and put on the roof. Keep your eye on the calendar too. By spending a whole year at the building site, you can watch events unfold until the school is ready for students and teachers. Book jacket.
