I was worried when I ordered this book that it wouldn't have the part in it where the little lady doesn't want to move so the Big Equipment Drivers build around her house with the yellow roses. I was the right book! and it wonderful condition. I would say it's brand new as the pages have that unopened feel to them.
Great message and awesome illustrations. They don't make kids books like they used to! If you grew up on Goldenbooks, get them for your kids. They have just as much fun with them as you did, whether they read them or build giant buildings out of them.
A readable copy of a book my 50+ year old architect brother remembered from his childhood.
My son loved this book in the 80's. However, when I ordered a copy from this site what I received was a book similarly titled "Make Way for the Thruway." If you are purchasing a copy, please be sure to contact the seller in advance.
This Little Golden Book was the best. I got it in 1963 but Lord only knows what happened to it over the years. About an old lady who refuses to sell out for a highway being built and forces the city to curve it around her house. She wins over the road building crew as well in the end. I think this book sparked a lifelong interest in highways. End of book shows traffic speeding by past her front yard while she sits in front of the house knitting. Wish I could find a decent copy again.
My 2 year old son loved this book in the late 80's . I hated the book, but could not throw it away because my children were in love with bulldozers and earth movers. At that time the book struck me as laughable because it romanticized the building of highways. All the little animals were told to get out of the way because the highway must go through ! This book is a classic if you like something which is earth unfriendly --- a book with no regard for teaching young people respect for the environment, and nature. You may love this book if you like construction and concrete. And if you hate rose gardens and little animals you will definitely love this book.
