    My kid is in a construction phase right now. I thought this book about machines working hard and then getting sleepy was alright. My kid is a big fan.

Then he just stood there, next to it, grinning happily. It was parked in the park because the two dudes in it were getting high. They waved cheerfully to my kid, my kid waved ecstatically back. I stood there awkwardly. Garbage dudes are not nice to you but they are nice as shit to little kids. A lot of people are like that. Different truck, obviously, I'm not gonna narc those garbage dudes out. Point is I can't tell you how many times I've read this fucking book. Here's what it's about, it's about trucks that go to sleep. Let's rate the trucks. Crane Truck: Crane Truck hangs a nightlight from his crane before he goes to sleep, that's pretty cute. He has a teddy bear. Four stars. Cement Truck He gets a bath? That's not that exciting. That's not even a cement mixer-specific thing. Lame. My wife says: "I don't like his face." Two stars. Dump Truck It's clever how his Z's get incorporated into the building. Three stars. Bulldozer This one is my favorite, look, he made a dirt pillow. He's taking a dirt nap. Five stars. Excavator "Excavator" is my kid's favorite word, but this guy isn't doing anything. Bulldozer made a whole pillow, and Excavator's just...what is that, two piles? I think it sucks. My wife disagrees. She says he looks "cozy." "But that's just dirt," I argue. "Cozy," she replies firmly. Three stars. My kid likes trucks, is what I'm saying. Trucks are heavily anthropomorphized creatures around here. You do what you gotta do. No more huffing and puffing, team; it's time to rest your heads and dream.

    My husband is a construction engineer and he is away from home many times. Sometimes he is even away for days. Thus, naturally my little boy appreciates anything that reminds him his dad and his dad's work. This book is the perfect bedtime story. Of course we own a copy of the book and it has a nice place at our selves.

    Read this with my 4 year old nephew tonight. He and his brother love trucks and played in their sandbox all summer with their own set of trucks. It was just so cute to read this book to him at bedtime. All the trucks are finished their work for the day and have to get their sleep. The rhymes flow nicely and my nephew and I laughed quite a bit. A delightful read!

    3.5 STARS This is such a cute idea, and a great alternative to bedtime stories featuring animals as many children love big construction trucks. I mean, they are pretty darn cool ;-> And it's fun imagining them dozing off to sleep after a long day helping to build structures. But, ultimately, I wasn't super wowed.

I mean, they are pretty darn cool ;-> And it's fun imagining them dozing off to sleep after a long day helping to build structures. But, ultimately, I wasn't super wowed. Maybe all the hype just set me up to be a little disappointed. The rhyming text was just okay for me, and though I liked the illustrations alright I didn't find most of them as endearing as the one on the cover. Also, it might have been nice for one of the trucks to be a "she" since some little girls do like construction trucks! Too, I found the switching back-and-forth between daytime and nighttime a bit odd pacing as we move through each truck, first showing the work it does, then showing it ready for bed. Maybe I'm just being picky. I know I'm being picky in calling out the incorrect use of the term "cement mixer" for the truck in the book (and I did not deduct any stars for this), but please allow this daughter of a contractor and home builder her say and give your children the correct terms instead. First of all, a "cement mixer" (concrete mixer) is a piece of equipment used to mix concrete. It looks like this: What is called a Cement Mixer in this book is actually a Concrete Truck, they often look like this: In the industry, these are also known as "bulkers" (that is the large, round mixing part). One may call them concrete trucks, but please do not call them cement trucks and certainly not cement mixers. As one construction company spells out online: "CEMENT is one of the basic ingredients used to make CONCRETE … just as FLOUR is one of the basic ingredients used to make CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES. No one calls flour "chocolate chip cookies" … and no one calls chocolate chip cookies 'flour' (or thinks the words should be used interchangeably). When cement is mixed with water and other basic ingredients – sand, and gravel or crushed stone, – it forms a paste that glues these basic ingredients into a rock-like mass, which is known as concrete." They continue on with many more details on the proper usage (http://www.schmitzmix.com/press/press...) As you can see, misuse of the term is a sore spot for construction professionals ;-) Forgive my little tangent, but I really do feel children deserve to know the proper terminology, especially if they are truly interested in construction sites and equipment. Of course, I can't blame the author for using the incorrect terms when it is so prevalent in most of society (she probably had no idea), but I do wish there had been some sort of fact-checker on a book that is specifically about construction trucks. Ah well, for those little ones who love nothing better than to mix their own mud-and-pebbles concrete in the backyard, this will probably be a winner of a bedtime story.

I don't much care for the text in the book; it doesn't really trip off the tongue but I do appreciate the vocabulary lesson (did you know that cranes have "booms?" Me neither). I also like the context it has given me for when we pass construction sites that are not active. I can tell my son they've all gone to bed, and he'll happily accept that answer where before he thought I was lying and scheming to keep moving construction equipment, and therefore all joy, out of his life. The illustrations are great. Thumbs up. Even though the book is a big hit in my house, it's losing two full stars for the complete absence of the female gender. This is more irritating because the author is a woman. Really, you found you couldn't have made ONE of these machines a girl? **Good thing my son loves it because we will own it as soon as I can overcome my shame and confess to the library that he ripped a page out in his enthusiasm.**

    This was in our most recent library book bundle about trucks and construction (might as well start enforcing those gender stereotypes early, right?). I loved it so much that I have renewed it twice now and am thinking I just need to buy my son his own copy. What do I love about it? First of all, the illustrations are so endearing!

The Cement Mixer with his blankie and the Crane Truck with his stuffed animal and night light just make my heart melt every time I look at them. The images are simultaneously soothing and pleasantly colorful. For me the rhyming text flows freely, and there are appealing sound effect and repetitive elements for little listeners to enjoy. I even made up my own rhyming verse for my little boy, which I tuck in at the end of the read as I'm snuggling him into his crib: "You've had such fun, you've played all day. It's time for bed, Sebastian J. Shh...goodnight, Sebastian, goodnight." He gets a big grin on his face every single time. I can't wait until he's old enough to understand the humor in the pictures. ETA August 2015: My baby girl enjoys the rhymes in this book, and my three-year-old is now thoroughly obsessed. We have read this A LOT lately! This book is a new favorite at our house, for sure.

    Tom Lichtenheld is one of my favorite illustrators. I discovered his work—how was I missing it??—in the wonderful Chris Barton picture book, Shark Vs. Train, that you’ve heard me rave about so many times before. Tom’s bold, energetic style crackles with humor and appeal. My kids are all drawn to his work; his illustrations are the kind you pore over, giggling at the details. I went on a binge last week and ordered all the Lichtenheld our library system could muster.

My kids are all drawn to his work; his illustrations are the kind you pore over, giggling at the details. I went on a binge last week and ordered all the Lichtenheld our library system could muster. (The entire second row pictured in this link is sitting on my bed right this minute.) The resulting reading pile is a Rillabooks post-in-progress, but I could not resist interrupting myself to write about one particular book from that pile, the one that has completely enchanted my two-year-old son. Huck’s a truck kid, through and through. Trucks, cars, and trains. Preferably half-buried in dirt. He has staked a claim on a corner of my veggie garden: it’s where the trucks grow. When I saw that Tom Lichtenheld is the illustrator of Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site by Sherri Duskey Rinker, I knew I’d pretty much found Huck’s dream book. I underestimated. He is CRAZY about this book, carries it everywhere, begs for it a dozen times a day or more. It’s his Mike Mulligan and the Steam Shovel (you Ramona fans know what I mean), but I’m not in a Beezus place yet because when I read it to him, he is SO. DARN. CUTE. It’s a bedtime book set in a construction site. Are you thinking: that’s brilliant? Because the moment I saw it, I thought, that’s brilliant. Five big rough, tough construction vehicles finish their day’s work and get ready for bed, one by one. I wish I could show you every page of the art. If you click on the title above, you can view some images from the book. There’s a book trailer there, too, which HUCK MUST NOT SEE or I’ll never pry him away from the computer ever again. Besides, I’m greedy for the cuddles this book gets me. My busy boy climbs into my lap and more or less acts out the book—raising an arm high when the crane truck lifts one last beam, whirling his hands when the cement mixer mixes a final load—and when the excavator snuggles into its dirt bed, Huck hugs me tight: “Now we ’nuggle, Mommy.” Ridiculously cute, right? The best part is right in the middle when the dump truck appears. “Dat me!” he says every time. “You’re the dump truck?” “Yes.” Shh…goodnight, Dump Truck, goodnight.

    I love anthropomorphism. Most of my favorite children's books have talking animals with cheeky personalities but joining the ranks of my favorite animal characters are these busy trucks who let out a yawn and cuddle with teddy bears at the end of the day. Yes, if I didn't have a busy-all-things-construction-site toddler boy, this may not rank as high as the others but the illustrations are wonderful and descriptive and rhyming text.

He recognized the "Big Dig" right away, and immediately told me a story about a shovel and the moon and the stars. The story is great. The text is good, especially since it is a debut book -- the rhyming scheme goes off occasionally, but not irretrievably. The illustrations, however, are phenomenal. The illustrations have a wonderful retro feel; they are soft, but bright and friendly, and with a healthy dose of humor. In all, my favorite kind of illustrations.

    When your child is fixated by any manner of construction equipment or large truck, this book is the best. As the construction site shuts down for the day, so do the machines doing the dirty work--they all go to sleep. Each one has it's own personality, which is adorable. And the rhyming, while at times expected and repetitive, mostly feels fresh and fun. It's well written and the illustrations are perfect.

    According to the New York Times Book Review podcast, this book was in a slush pile on someone's desk until an editorial assistant pulled it out of the pile. It has been on the NYT best seller's list for children's books for more than 2 years. It's an easily read book in iambic pentameter rhyme. Wonderful illustrations, too.

    I'll be honest, every vehicle looked like a bus to me, so I'll call every vehicle a bus if I want to. Buses at a construction site? Preposterous.

It's difficult to believe that this was author Sherri Duskey Rinker's debut, as the text is so assured, and reads so well, just tripping off the tongue! Young truck-lovers - of which there are many! - will get a kick out of this bedtime book, and will enjoy listening to the rhyming refrain as vehicle after vehicle gets ready to go to bed. The artwork by Tom Lichtenheld shifts between more wakeful colors such as yellow and orange in the daytime scenes, and more peaceful hues such as blue in the nighttime ones, giving a visual reinforcement to the theme of winding down. Recommended to anyone looking for the perfect bedtime book for the young construction and/or truck enthusiast.

Good days, bad Read for CBR 6 Today you lovely people get to benefit from my 1) need to provide the newest arrivals in my family with quality children’s literature, 2) hatred for gift registries, and 3) understanding of the panic that occurs when tiny babies do not want to go to sleep. My go-to gift for any occasion is a book. Or many books. I figure you, my fellow Cannonballers, have a similar notion that there is, somewhere in the universe, a perfect book to give as a gift for almost every reason. Good days, bad days, promotions, losses, stubbed toes, missing you moments: Books are good for them all. Not cure-alls, mind you, but just to show you care, to let the person know you’re thinking of them, whatever the reason may be. And for actual gift giving days – birthdays, parties, Christmases and the like? Books should be your first response. So for my cousin’s upcoming baby shower, I gave the registry a brief glimpse – too much pink, too little I could actually afford – and happened to see that they’d requested the Johnson & Johnson’s bath wash that’s specifically for bedtime (in that it contains “soothing lavender essence”), and I figured I could work with that. So I put together a little care package of the baby wash, an adorable puppy softie (that is seriously so soft I want to keep it, but won’t), and some appropriately soothing bedtime books to add to the new kiddo’s routine. I started with a couple of classics, which I am not going to bother reviewing: if you don’t know about the awesome that is Goodnight Moon, I’m not sure why you’re bothering to read this review at all. Other five-star favorites I included were Sandra Boynton’s The Going to Bed Book; Ten, Night, Eight by Molly Bang; and Good Night Gorilla, by Peggy Rathman. (All of these books are in board book form unless I mentioned otherwise, because gnawing on books should just be a given until a kid turns two-ish.) Next up is Time for Bed, written by Mem Fox & illustrated by Jane Dyer, which came out in 1993, and I consider a staple of bedtime books, but the lady at the bookstore hadn’t heard of it (gasp!), so I figure maybe I should extol on its virtues a bit here for those who’ve missed out. The short, repetitive & rhyming text (“It’s time for bed little goose(animal), little goose(animal); the stars are out and on the loose (rhyme)”) are sweet, cozy and charming. The pictures are water-colored & dreamy, and easily recognizable for older kids, and – while it doesn’t have any of the little comic surprises of a Good Night, Gorilla or The Going to Bed Book – the simple, soothing pattern is one that kids tend to memorize quickly and learn to help you ‘read’ early on. The last three books I chose were new to me: The first, If Animals Kissed Good Night, by Ann Whitford Paul, with entertaining illustrations by David Walker, drew me in because of the adorable elephants on the cover, and works as a good companion to Time for Bed, as it goes through different animals and their progeny (bear and a cub, seal and a calf, parrot and chick, etc.) and how they might say good night. It’s more Suessian & playful – with its “splashity-splishes” and “mud-happy heaps”, but no less soothing or snuggly. Hush Little Polar Bear, by Jeff Mack, is about the adventures a sleeping stuffed polar bear – and his little girl – might get into in their dreams. All the “bouncing through pastures” and “creeping through caves” are lovingly drawn and the fuzzy bear somehow manages to safely navigate his way back to imagining that he’s safe and sound with the little girl, all tucked into bed, book laid out on top of the sheets. It’s cute, and it’s a little bit different from the others in that it’s neither a book about a specific routine (10,9,8 or Goodnight Moon, i.e.) or a book about imagined routines (all the rest). Dreams and adventures definitely need to have some space in the bedtime book line-up. (It’s more along the lines of a Harold and the Purple Crayon.) Last – and the only non-board book, because I don’t think there is one – is Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site, by Sherri Duskey Rinker and Tom Lichtenheld. I bought it specifically because my cousin is an architect and works at construction sites a lot, so his little girl should know about them, eventually. The book goes through all different pieces of equipment and what they do – crane truck, cement mixer, dump truck, etc – and then has them slowly ending their day and going to sleep, with a gentle rhyme & and a brightly colored illustration – “He lowers his bed, locks his gate; Rests his wheels; it’s getting late. He dims his lights, then shuts his doors, and soon his engine slows to snores. Shh… goodnight, Dump Truck, goodnight.” There you have it: Baby’s first bedtime books, which stop here only because I ran out of money. (Given a bit more funding I would also include: Roar of a Snore; The Napping House; Steam Train, Dream Train; Moon Dreams ; Llama, llama Red Pajama; The Dream Jar; I Love You, Stinky Face)

    Other than having to read "concrete mixer" out loud (because it remains my personal pet peeve that children's books refuse to name things correctly - it's not a cement mixer - cement is the stuff that binds the rocks, sand, and water together to make new rocks - aka concrete) this is a super charming book.
