Susan E. Goodman, Michael Doolittle
(Knopf Books for Young Readers Nov. 9, 2004)
IT ALL STARTS with a vision of a building so high it will catch the clouds. . . .
From that first vision, through the planning, digging, welding, fitting, and decorating, Skyscraper shows how a very tall building is constructed in a very narrow space. Author Susan Goodman and photographer Michael Doolittle spent several years documenting the building of a New York City skyscraper. They have distilled hundreds of photographs and hours of interviews and research into this lively and accessible book for construction fans of all ages.
