Librarians! These would work nicely to have out for children's independent use after a construction story time. Maybe you'd read Diggers Go by Steve Light, or Demolition by Sally Sutton. And there's always Tip Tip Dig Dig by Emma Garcia... So many good books to read on this topic! I'd probably go ahead and sing TRUCK (or here) and maybe play Little Duck Little Duck, are you in the ________ Truck to round things out :) And here's a link to some construction-themed rhymes and finger plays.
I realized after I finished gluing on the hats that I forgot to make female workers! I'm going to see if I can dismantle one of those guys and stick some braids on...
A two-worker, three-truck version of this set is available at my Etsy shop--please come browse around!
