BUILD IT will appeal to the young reader, as well as those having the book read to them. The excitement unfolds as each boldly colored page is turned. The buzz of activity on a construction site is explained in rhyme in this delightful hardbound book. Safety comes first on a construction site, BUILD IT begins with the young visitors putting on their hard hats, learning about the equipment, watching trades people hard at work and finally experiencing the shared enthusiasm for a job well-done. A small book with a big message about the day-to-day activities on a construction site, identifying the men and women in the various trades, the unique machines and the importance of teamwork.
Laura Seitz Danielsen works for a construction company called APi Group and is passionate about inspiring young people to pursue careers in the industry.
Build It is her first publication. However, she has leveraged her clever rhyming skills to win various contests and prizes, including her wedding package. Writing a book has been a dream that is decades in the making.
Laura grew up in Virginia, MN and graduated from the University of Minnesota, Duluth where she fell in love with Lake Superior. She now calls Northern Minnesota home with her amazingly supportive husband, spunky daughter, and sweet son. Her mission in life is to embrace adventure and to instigate fun.
Micheal Putman: Michael has been a "professional" artist since he was 13 and drawing caricatures at children's birthday parties. A Twin Cities based graphic designer and illustrator with 20 years of independent practice at
www.putmanillustration.com, he is thoroughly enjoying moving into the realm of illustrating children's books. He hopes this colorful trip through the world of construction sparks imaginations and curiosity about how the world is built. "Measure twice and cut once."
