Crush It!, Knock It Down!, Blow It Up!, and Shred It! are four new books in the Capstone Book for Young Readers: Destruction Series. This series of books for young readers is an interactive reading experience that your young reader will thoroughly enjoy! This interactive four-book series is made of sturdy hardbound cardboard with moveable pictures so your child can lift flaps, pull tabs, and move levers to crush those cars flat, knock that building down, make buildings explode and shred tires into tiny pieces. Each book in this four-book series has 7 pages of interactive destruction for your little one to enjoy!Destruction Series

This 4 book series includes:

  • Blow It Up!  It’s all about blowing things up, it starts with an old building, and ends with explosions and implosions. You get to see the before & after photos of a football stadium being torn down, and a bridge falling into the water after exploding.
  • Crush It!  Takes you inside the world of industrial crushing. Where do old cars and scrap parts go? To the crusher! Once the crusher has done its job, “All that metal can be turned into something new”. 
  • Shred It!  Before a car is crushed, the tires need to be disposed of! Where else should tires go than the shredder? They go up the conveyor belt and drop into the shredder so that the end result is little rubber bits. The small rubber bits can be used to create a soft landing for a playground.
  • Knock It Down!  Some buildings can’t be imploded so in comes the wrecking ball. The wrecking ball is used to reduce a building to rubble so that it may be hauled away to make room for a new building.

All 4 books in this series have beautiful glossy pictures with big letters for reading ease for the little ones. Every page has a moveable part which will keep your little one busy for hours on end.

    Stomp It sounds like a good title! I think my grandsons would have fun with something that involved stomping things flat with their feet.

    I think it would be neat to have a series about natural disasters and the clean up afterward, such as earthquakes and volcanoes. Thanks for the super giveaway opportunity. Keep up the terrific blogging.

    This is already mentioned, but I’ve wanted to me a storm chaser/meteorologist since I was 5 & I would do something about the clean up of natural disasters. I’d call it aftermath. 😉

    I think Break it Down would be good. It could focus on breaking items down for recycling or to for new products.

    Pulverize it- the emphasis of dropping things from high heights, kind of crushing on steroids.

    How about something like ‘Melt it’ about making silica ‘sand’ into glass or about how things are forged, like plumbing fixtures.

    Or ‘Rot it’ about composting and how when things break-down they can be used again for new food production, you know, the whole cycle.
