WWRM: Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site

wwrm-449670-edited.pngThis week, we are reading Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site by Sherri Duskey Rinker. The illustrator is Tom Lichtenheld, whose other books I love (like Duck! Rabbit! and E-Mergency). Both babies really like this book and I enjoy Lichtenheld's beautiful illustrations as well as the rhyming text and storyline. 
In Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site, the construction site is closing down after a very busy building day. The sun is setting and each vehicle does one last part of their job and settles in for the night. As you say goodnight to each vehicle, look for the little bedtime details including a nightlight, a blanket, and a lovey. My favorite is the crane truck and his nightlight. I also love that you say "shh...goodnight {construction truck}, goodnight" at the end of each truck's page. I think it winds down for bed so well. 
As a mom to two curious little people, I feel like I need to start brushing up on my construction vehicles so I can teach the the proper names and what each vehicle does and this book is helpful for that! 
This is a great bedtime book or book for any construction truck lovers out there!
