Editorial Reviews

Truck-loving kids will respond to this take on settling down to sleep. " - The Horn Book Guide"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"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"If your little reader is mad for trucks, you must get this gem of a book!""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.""A delightful debut." - The New York Times" A standout picture book, especially for those who like wheels with their dreams" - Booklist, starred review"
