Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site

As the sun sets behind the big construction site, all the hardworking trucks get ready to say goodnight. One by one, Crane Truck, Cement Mixer, Dump Truck, Bulldozer, and Excavator finish their work and lie down to rest-so they’ll be ready for another day of rough and tough construction play! With irresistible artwork by best-selling illustrator Tom Lichtenheld and sweet, rhyming text, this book will have truck lovers of all ages begging for more.

Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site features illustrations that kids will enjoy.  I loved that the artwork depicts the personalities of each character in such a fun way.  My girls love having this book read to them, and typically ask to hear it again and again!  My only disappointment with this title is that none of the characters are female, and clearly boys aren’t the only ones with an interest and love for trucks!

Steam Train, Dream Train

The team behind the #1 New York Times bestseller Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site returns with another fabulous book for bedtime! The dream train pulls into the station, and one by one the train cars are loaded: polar bears pack the reefer car with ice cream, elephants fill the tanker cars with paints, tortoises stock the auto rack with race cars, bouncy kangaroos stuff the hopper car with balls. Sweet and silly dreams are guaranteed for any budding train enthusiasts!

My girls also love having this title read to them at night too.  It’s a pleasant, relaxing bedtime read.  The illustrations are much darker than Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site but they perfectly suit the dreamy story and set the tone for a good nights sleep.

Steam Train, Dream TrainMy 22 month old has recently started being interested in puzzles after watching my 3 year old put them together.  When I gave her this floor puzzle to play with she was over the moon!  There is no right or wrong way to assemble the puzzle as the pieces are double sided and they all interlock with one another aside from the engine and caboose pieces.  They come in a sturdy box for storage which makes clean up super easy. The pieces are thick and large which makes them perfect for little hands!

  1. I have absolutely no idea, that’s close to 65 yrs ago, I couldn’t even tell you whether my parents ever read to me!

  2. I’m not sure if my comment posted the other day or not, but my favourite book growing up was t’was the night before christmas

  3. My favorite bedtime story was Cinderella! For some reason it really moved me and I was more considerate of some other children at school wondering if they were really like this Cinderella at home.It made me realize that things are not always as they seem.
