“The beloved characters from Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site . . . this time delving deep into the process of destruction. . . . Unlike many other books about demolitions, this one takes time to note that as materials are wrenched asunder, they’re also sorted for recycling purposes. . . . Expect established fans to thoroughly enjoy both the familiar faces as well as newer types; readers new to the series will likely want to seek out earlier volumes. Ideal as a read-aloud. . . A knock-down knockout in more ways than one.”—Kirkus Reviews
“[In Construction Site Mission: Demolition! and paired with] Ford’s soft and textured oil crayon illustrations. . . Rinker’s couplet rhymes are peppered with the satisfying sounds of the building coming apart—‘Crumble! Crash!’—while maintaining a rhythm that can be read aloud with ease and enthusiasm.”—The Horn Book Magazine
