"Rinker's rhythmic verse reinforces the vehicles' love of their work (Dump Truck "moves the dirt/ from place to place, / Then dumps it with a happy face") and, like Lichtenheld's art, deftly balances the story's boisterous and drowsy elements. Truck lovers will happily nod off to the strains of this read-aloud." - Publishers Weekly

Format: Hardcover
This is just a wonderful bedtime story for any young fan of big machinery. The rhyming is spot on, creating a fantastic read aloud flow. We get to say goodnight to each machine as it dozes off, creating just the right atmosphere for bedtime. The illustrations have that classic old fashioned feel, done in muted colors with somewhat fuzzed edges. Each character has an expressive face that only adds to the charm of a story that is sure to be a much requested bed time read. A note to any librarian or story group leader interested in doing a bedtime theme story time: this is a sure winner! Just the perfect length for preschoolers. A sleepy recommend.

My kids absolutely love this book and since we have got it they will not go to bed without having the 'Digger book' read. My daughter loves it just as much as my son and just loves that one digger has a star light and teddy and another a blanket. They also love the page with a man is telling the digger to keep quiet because he is snoring. Nearly didn't get this book because of price but so really happy I did. Thanks

Love love love, I can not recommend this book enough, it's amazing. Yes it uses the word "excavator", which is very american but it's still a really nice book. We had it in kindle format to begin with but I wanted a real book to hold, so bought this. It's soooo nice.

Lovely good night book for little boys. Doesn't work miracles (sadly), but does hold their attention and help them to calm down after a long day. Try Steam Train, Dream Train from the same author too - the latter is an even better book, but both deserve five stars.

Format: Hardcover
"Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site" written by Sherri Duskey Rinker and beautifully illustrated by Tom Lichtenheld is a story about the events on the construction site when workers had left and night fell.

Small reader will meet Crane Truck, Cement Mixer, Bulldozer and others which are tired from work, but still in good mood finish their day and prepare to go to sleep.
They worked hard all day, lifting things, mixing cement and carrying dirt, and just like humans do, they also need to sleep, to regain their strength for the new day.

"Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site" is nicely designed book that besides being great bedtime story due to its theme is also useful book for kids to learn about construction vehicles and their purpose.
Also, the book teaches children how important is to sleep because no matter how strong you are, you have to get a good night's sleep in order to be rested again tomorrow and ready to do your job or play.
Additionally, this book shows how is for the main characters important to finish their job every day before going satisfied to sleep, enabling children to also learn a lesson for their current and future tasks.

With the text in rhymes author made reading this book easy and full of pleasure, while in same time the illustrator with his drawings beautifully breathed life in construction vehicles.
The book illustrations are made in calm and known Lichtenheld graphic style, producing some kind of special warmth for reader while passing through its pages.

Therefore, this beautifully illustrated book full of useful and instructive lessons for kids can be recommended to every parent, because from personal experience I can see how much children enjoy reading it.

Gorgeous book. My 3 year old son is obsessed with it & knows the story word for word. Love that you can draw parallels with the trucks working hard and then resting at night by going to sleep. It appeals to the 3 year olds sense of logic! I highly recommend

This is a very nice book, nice illustrations and little boys with an obsession for trucks etc will love the images. The storyline is great also, however I would have liked more of a rhythm to the writing. Of course that's my personal opinion, but when you see so many great reviews and the fact that it's a best seller, I guess you expect that extra something.

Not only did my toddler love this as it contains lots of his favourite vehicles, I loved the art work, would not have thought a book about a construction site could be so beautiful. The story was great as well, not too long or too short, with flowing rhymes. Top marks.
