Huge bulldozers, roaring cement mixers, and a super adorable pup make this the perfect board book for construction-obsessed toddlers.

     Kids who love big, noisy machines can watch step-by-step as cute pup Jack builds a home by driving a bulldozer, operating a cement mixer, and using a forklift. Perfect for fans of Paw Patrol, toddlers will enjoy watching Jack build walls, frame windows, and nail down a roof. 

Adorable illustrations by award-winner Mike Wohnoutka of a construction pup with a tool belt are sure to engage even the youngest dog-lover. Big, bold trucks fill the pages in Jack's House, a simplified take on the classic nursery rhyme, "This Is the House that Jack Built."
