Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site written by Sherri Duskey Rinker and illustrated by Tom Lichtenheld is another one of our favourite bedtime stories at home. Why? It has all sorts of awesome construction site vehicles. You know, the ones you see and immediately point and yell in a panic, “Look! Look! Look!” hoping to high heaven that your little one sees it from his or her car seat before you drive out of sight.
One by one, we see construction site vehicles wind down from their day of tough construction work. Crane Truck, Cement Mixer, Dump Truck, Bulldozer and Excavator each make their appearance and settle down for bedtime to recharge for another day tomorrow. I suppose you could call them the Big 5 of Construction Site Vehicles? Yeah, let’s go with that.
The rhyming has a good rhythm and the illustrations by Tom Lichtenheld are perfect. I always love stories like this for bedtime where the characters are settling down and going to sleep. It rubs off on your little one. Before you know it, eyelids get heavy, faces relax so you know they’re primed for sleep.
We have the Glow in the dark edition which is pretty cool, but being a book, it’s impossible to charge all the pages up at once. We usually just pick one page and charge it up under a bright light while we read another story together.
Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site Summary
I definitely recommend this book if your son or daughter is into construction site vehicles. It’s a good chance for the younger ones to learn the different vehicle names and how each one has a specific job that they have been designed to do well.
So if you can imagine your child loving a construction site bedtime story that is a #1 New York Times Bestseller, then grab yourself a copy from Booktopia or whatever your go-to book store is.
