Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site
by Sherri Duskey Rinker, illustrated by Tom Lichtenheld
Chronicle Books, 2011
This book is perfect to quiet down rambunctious boys for sleep.
As the sun sets and the day comes to an end, the reader walks through what each piece of heavy equipment does at a construction site. As the machinery “gets sleepy” and begins to slow down and yawns, each machine is quietly ‘tucked in’ for sleep. Readers see big strong machinery snuggling up against soft dirt pillows. Readers who dream of working on heavy equipment at construction sites will love it.
The subject, rhyme and kid-friendly illustrations has turned this book into a best-seller.
