Janina Edwards is a terrific choice to narrate this inspirational audiobook for young enthusiasts of design and construction. Evocative music sets the tone as Edwards introduces the hardworking teams of people who transform the ideas and plans of the architect, engineer, artist, scientist, park designer, book author, and illustrator into concrete reality. Buzzing saws and other sound effects add atmosphere while Edwards's warm voice captures the text's rhymes, rhythms, and energy. Her calm, thoughtful delivery also reflects the author's respect for laborers, often unknown or unacknowledged, who work behind the scenes to create so much of what we see and use in everyday life. Captivating illustrations in the accompanying picture book provide a visual framework with fascinating details to investigate while listening.
