Goodnight Goodnight Construction Site

I know it's been awhile since I've slowed down to take the time to share one of our favorite picture books but I've finally have got one to share with you all today. It's called Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site by Sherri Duskey Rinker and illustrated by Tom Lichtenheld. If you happen to know my little guy you probably know he's all about things that go so this was the perfect read for him. We see different rough and tough construction trucks as they work during the day but then each one settles down at the end of the day for a good night's rest. The story is just a few lines of rhyming text on each page just the perfect length for little ones. The illustrations are so charming and you'll find some surprising bedtime favorites that you might not expect being part of rough and tough construction trucks' bedtime routine. It's a very fun read but also a great wind down read to a busy day. I'm sure this will become a bedtime favorite for many!


  1. Thank you so much for the nice review, Michelle. I'm greatly appreciative and THRILLED that your little guy likes the book! (I wrote it for my own little guy.)

  2. What a perfect book for those little boys and girls who love standing on the window seat to watch the construction workers outdoors. :-)
