Review Quote*'A delightful debut.'--The New York Times 'A standout picture book, especially for those who like wheels with their dreams'--Booklist, starred review '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 '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 '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!' 'Gentle rhymes and soft-colored pictures of favorite trucks are the perfect way to lull any child into sweet dreams.' -- Bookmarkable blog '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.'
