The six truck friends, as part of the Construction Site Crew, are starting a new job at the airport. They are in charge of making the airport bigger. The crew will need lots of help from their new airport friends to get the job done.
With rhyming text and the vibrant and classic illustrations we love from AG Ford, kids will be excited to see the Construction Site Crew on a new, very important job! The airport is getting so busy, it isn’t big enough to handle all the travelers coming in and out. So, the Construction Site Crew needs to build a wider road, more runways, and a bigger airport.
The crew likes watching all the planes come and go, but there is no time to slow down. There is so much work to do. While the Construction Site Crew works on the new addition, the airport crew keeps busy with their jobs unloading the luggage, fueling the airplanes, and tugging the airplanes inside for a maintenance check.
More and more planes need to take off, but they have to wait their turn. The Construction Site Crew is working hard to get the job done. But, when an unexpected springtime snowstorm arrives, the Crew switches into snow removal mode to keep everyone flying.
With the job finally complete, the Construction Site Crew has made all kinds of new friends and can head home for a good night’s rest. Don’t miss this new addition to the Construction Site series.
