As it’s getting later in the night..at least where I’m at…I thought, why not a better book than one that says goodnight? The book that I’m about to share with you all is one of the best goodnight books I’ve ever read. The book is called Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site by Sherri Duskey Rinker. This adorable book, which is also a New York Times Bestseller, takes you around to all the different construction trucks on a construction site.  As the day turns into night, the trucks get ready for sleep. With the great story rhyming that flows throughout the book, you will find yourself wanting to say goodnight to these trucks over and over again. This is a great goodnight book for kids, and for anyone that loves construction trucks. The Illustration, which is done by Tom Lichtenheld, is rendered in Neocolor wax oil pastels on Mi-Teintes paper. It brings the book to life with its detailed coloring and creative expressions. Carrie Anne from everythingmom.com says “Kids will love seeing the vehicles in action and the last few pages are very mellow and help set the tone of winding down (both trucks and kids) for the night. Although this book would appeal to both boys and girls, I like that this bedtime story appeals to the rough and tumble kids versus something all soft and fluffy.” Need a new bedtime book to read to your kids? I’d check this one out for sure. If not, you’d be missing out.

  1. My 3yo daughter thought this book was great fun, so we recently gave it to her best bud (also 3) when he became a big brother. I agree, a nice twist on the “cuddly” type of bedtime book.

  2. How cute — love the cover. Neat to have an option for kids that aren’t the fluffy bunny type. Personally, I love the fluffy bunnies, but I know that doesn’t work for everyone. Not even everyone under age 5.

  3. Thank you so much for the nice review; I’m so honored and appreciative!

    My next book, also illustrated by Tom Lichtenheld, “Steam Train, Dream Train,” will be out in the spring. I hope you’ll watch for it!

    Warmly,
