Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site Review

What is it about this book? There’s something magical about this story that made my toddler fall asleep only at the second reading!

Let’s deconstruct:
– the rhythm and rhyme are very good, very pleasant to the ear of both the child and the parent.
– Then there are all the blue illustrations that have a tranquilizing effect on the active little readers,
– then there are the “shhh, good night” bits, which have a profound sleeping effect on the child.

While it does seem to be targeted towards boys (it’s all about trucks!), my daughter fell asleep to this book as opposed to several othes that we tried last night. And we tried quite a few! She usually chooses the books herself and while I’m delighted that she often chooses mine (her recent favorite is Maya & Filippo Play Chef at Sea (Volume 2)) she’s just too excited about them to fall asleep.

To conclude, it’s a great bedtime read even for girls. Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site is a great addition to your library.

Rating: 5/5.
