Sam and his friends love anything related to construction. As Sam walks to summer camp or swim practice, he feels pulled to building sites, road construction, and his favorite machines: backhoes. So, when the gas company sends Sam’s family a note that a construction project is happening right in his own neighborhood, he is drawn to the site.
There, in the enormous trenches of the job site, Sam meets the crew -- Scott, Ronny, and Luis who quickly become big influences in his life. Scott soon makes Sam an official part of the crew. “If you are going to visit our job site, Construction Kid, you need a hard hat.” Scott says, tossing Sam his very own Fortney Construction crew hard hat.” From that moment on, Sam is hooked. The Construction Kid is based on a true story about a boy, a job, and a passion.
