So many little ones love trucks and gravitate toward books about vehicles. The challenge is to create picture books dealing with trucks that offer a rich language learning experience. “Goodnight, Goodnight, Constructions Site” by Rinker and Lichtenfeld accomplished just that! On the order of “Goodnight Moon,” we watch each truck at the construction site wind down their day, turn off their engines, and drift off to sleep. The crane, cement mixer, dump truck, bulldozer, and excavator perform their last task, fold in a boom, slow the drum, lower the bed, set the scoop down and snuggle up for a nights rest as we wish them each a goodnight. This clever author and illustrator describe the work of each truck with appropriate vocabulary, turn off the equipment and repeat a goodnight greeting to each truck. This story will surely encourage every little truck lover to tuck in and fall off to sleep.
