Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great bedtime read We LOVED this book and the kids love reading this one over and over. I had to change the pronouns as my daughter wanted to have female trucks so my only complaint is that they didn't swap out the genders to include females. Honestly though it's a great read! Rhyming books always are

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One happy nephew! I wish I could still get as excited about something as my 3-year-old nephew is about this book. He is truck-and-construction-vehicle obsessed and insists that his dad reads this book to him every single night. Every. Single. Night. He can basically recite the entire book off by heart now (my nephew, not his dad) and I may have to get him another copy because this one is showing signs of being well-loved. Ten stars from Daniel (maybe not so much from his dad - LOL)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "YAWN!" My son got this book about a year ago as a spontaneous purchase. He's got a special interest in machines, so I figured it would be an okay book. I was very pleasantly surprised at how charming and well written it is. I didn't mind reading it with him every night for four months straight! Now he's almost 4 and can read the book mostly on his own. I'm looking forward to having him read it to his little sister.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our 3 year old LOVES this Great writing. Great illustration. We must have read this a hundred times. It's helped our three year old (and us!) to learn the names of all the different construction vehicles. He even recreates the book with his toy trucks. Definitely a great addition to a pre-schooler's library.

He is a construction worker, so it was the perfect way for them to bond and for our son to learn what his Daddy does. It's quite accurate, very cute story and one we will read for a long time! I highly recommend this book.

Editorial Reviews

A standout picture book, especially for those who like wheels with their dreams" - Booklist, starred review"If your little reader is mad for trucks, you must get this gem of a book!" -SweetOnBooks.com"Gentle rhymes and soft-colored pictures of favorite trucks are the perfect way to lull any child into sweet dreams." - Bookmarkable blog,"For all those youngsters who feel coziest with a cement mixer jammed into an armpit and a dump truck wedged at their feet, Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site might be the best bedtime book ever." - Hampton Roads"An ideal bedtime book for all those truck-loving toddlers and preschoolers! ? If there's a truck fan in your family, this is a great pick? Drive it to the top of your pile of story time truck reads as well." - Waking Brain Cells blog"A great read-aloud story as you are settling your child in for the night." -About.com"A delightful debut." - The New York Times" Truck-loving kids will respond to this take on settling down to sleep. " - The Horn Book Guide"Lichtenheld's detailed and textured illustrations, rendered in wax oil pastels on vellum paper, perfectly complement the fun, rhyming text, cleverly personifying each truck with expressive eyes and amusing details. ? Recommended for vehicle- and bedtime-themed storytimes, this is sure to be a hit with truck-loving preschoolers." - School Library Journal, starred review"This book is a treasure." -Testy Yet Trying blog"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"Perfect for sleepers who are more fascinated by the motorized and muddy than by the soft and fluffy. A certain subset of parents and grandparents will see this book and shout, "At last!" - Chicago Tribune"
