Brief Book Summary: This story is about trucks and their day at work. They show the difficult work that they do throughout the day, but every night goes to sleep. This book shows kids that after their play, it is time for bed – even trucks do so!
Professional Recommendation/Review #1: Publishers Weekly
A noisy construction site may be an unorthodox setting for a bedtime story, but newcomer Rinker and Lichtenheld (Shark vs. Train) tie together the dual themes neatly. Though more subdued than the trucks that drive Kate and Jim McMullan’s I Stink! and I’m Dirty!, these anthropomorphized vehicles have a similar graphic feel and cheerful demeanor. After five machines are first pictured hard at work, they appear against a blazing sky: “The sun has set, the work is done;/ It’s time for trucks to end their fun./ So one by one they’ll go to bed/ To yawn and rest their sleepy heads,/ Then wake up to another day/ Of rough-and-tough construction play!” Each truck performs one final task before settling down to sleep, with gentle encouragement: “Shh... goodnight, Bulldozer, goodnight.” Rinker’s rhythmic verse reinforces the vehicles’ love of their work (Dump Truck “moves the dirt/ from place to place,/ Then dumps it with a happy face”) and, like Lichtenheld’s art, deftly balances the story’s boisterous and drowsy elements. Truck lovers will happily nod off to the strains of this read-aloud. Ages 4–8. (May)
Professional Recommendation/Review #2: School Library Journal
K-Gr 1—After each truck completes its work for the day, it cuddles up and says goodnight. Crane Truck raises one last beam and then hugs his teddy and turns on his nightlight. Cement Mixer gives a final spin before snuggling with his blanket. Dump Truck delivers his last load, closes his eyes, and starts to snore. Bulldozer and Excavator follow suit until the entire construction site is tucked in tight. Lichtenheld's detailed and textured illustrations, rendered in wax oil pastels on vellum paper, perfectly complement the fun, rhyming text, cleverly personifying each truck with expressive eyes and amusing details. The bright, golden background changes to pinkish red as the Sun begins to set and then to dark blue when the Moon appears. The repeated refrain, "Shh… goodnight, Crane Truck [Cement Mixer, Dump Truck, Bulldozer, Excavator], goodnight," will invite participation. Recommended for vehicle —and bedtime-themed story times, this is sure to be a hit with truck-loving preschoolers.—Rachel Kamin, North Suburban Synagogue Beth El, Highland Park, IL
Response to Two Professional Reviews: After reading both reviews, I see how much children would like this book. I think that this book is even better in digital form on Tumble Books, because you can actually see the trucks hard at work visually. The sound component to it is also beneficial for children. Both reviews think this would be a good bedtime story since in the end, all the trucks cuddle up and say goodnight.
Evaluation of Literary Elements: In this piece, the trucks symbolize human beings. This story speaks about how everyday the trucks go out and work so hard, and then come home and rest. This is similar to how humans react after a long, difficult day at work.
Consideration of Instructional Application: After reading this story, a teacher can go through each of the trucks that were in the book and explain them to the children. It would be helpful if they had toy trucks of each of these, so as they are reading it, the teacher can show them what the truck looks like as a toy car. I think this could help children be able to identify different trucks and their functions.
Read information about the authorSherri has returned to her passion of writing to indulge her own children's passions. A graphic designer, she lives in Chicago with her photographer husband, a cockapoo named Quincy, several fish, a few hermit crabs, an ever-changing array of insects in jars, toys in every corner, and two energetic and inquisitive young boys: one fascinated by bugs and magic and another obsessed with trucks and trains. She's constantly inspired -- and often exhausted! She created GOODNIGHT, GOODNIGHT, CONSTRUCTION SITE in hopes of happier bedtimes and sweet dreams for all.
This is Sherri's first book, and (just in case you think it can't happen!) it was picked from the slush pile.
