PRAISE FOR GOODNIGHT GOODNIGHT CONSTRUCTION SITE:
'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
'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
'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
'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,
'A delightful debut.' - The New York Times
