Children's Book Review: Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site
Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site
Written by: Sherri Duskey Rinker
Illustrated by: Tom Lichtenheld
Published by: Chronicle Books, 2011
As the sun sets behind the big construction site, all the hardworking trucks get ready to say goodnight. One by one, Crane Truck, Cement Mixer, Dump Truck, Bulldozer, and Excavator finish their work and lie down to rest—so they'll be ready for another day of rough and tough construction play! With irresistible artwork by best-selling illustrator Tom Lichtenheld and sweet, rhyming text, this book will have truck lovers of all ages begging for more.
* This book has been on the New York Times bestseller Children's Picture Book List for the past 17 weeks. Regardless of this fact, based on the title alone I knew I had to check it out to read to my son. The trucks at the construction site are getting ready for bed. Each truck is spotlighted as he finishes up his job and goes to sleep. The illustrations are colorful and cute. This is a great bedtime story for any child who loves trucks. Both my son and daughter loved the story.
Family Rating: two thumbs up!
