Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site

Recently, the county started doing some construction down the street from our house.

It’s pretty much Mark’s most favorite thing ever. He LOVES anything to do with construction right now. I think most kids go through phases and his is DEFINITELY construction right now.

We’ll occasionally go and watch the big machines and it’s the highlight of his week.

Since we drive by the work often, he’ll give me reports on what he sees:
“No back-hoe loader. Not moving. No guy in it.”
“Guy in it! Moving! Dump truck!”

Naturally, when we went to Powell’s a couple of weeks ago, I asked the very helpful clerk in the children’s section what book he would recommend and he pointed me in the direction of Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site by Sherri Duskey Rinker.

The story is pretty simple — all of the machines are going to sleep after a long day and each has its own bedtime routine.

Mark particularly likes this picture where the bulldozer has a blanket with it.

There’s lots of repetition, some good rhyme, and the pictures are really well-done and fun.

Overall, a total win of a book for Mark!

At least, it is when I can tear him away from the dirt in the backyard. 🙂
