Description

Stanley the Hamster is back—in monolingual Spanish! Myrtle wants to build a new house, and Stanley obliges in this story of friendship, community, and construction work.

It’s another busy day for Stanley and friends on the construction site!

When Myrtle buys a plot of land, she asks her friend Stanley the Hamster to build her a new house. With his rodent friend Charlie, he works step by step—from clearing the site with his orange bulldozer to digging the foundation with his yellow digger to pouring the cement, laying the bricks, lifting beams with his green crane, and finally painting in Myrtle’s favorite colors. And at the end of a hard day’s work, Stanley returns home for his familiar, comforting nighttime routine: “Time for supper! Time for a bath! And time for bed!”

Stanley el constructor shows young readers—with simple steps, text, and brightly colored illustrations—how construction workers build a house. Toddlers who love equipment, tools, and vehicles won’t be disappointed!

William Bee’s beloved Stanley series—perfect for Maisy fans—features adorable hardworking hamster Stanley and his community of rodent friends as they work different jobs and help each other along the way. Ideal for readers at a transitional age between board books and picture books, the books are trusted models of basic preschool concepts such as colors and shapes, kindness and teamwork, community helpers, jobs and careers, vehicles, and daily routines.
