My two year old son is obsessed with construction equipment. When I came across this book at the library I was extremely excited. My son also adores monster trucks, he was over the moon that there was a page in this book dedicated to monster trucks. I love that this book features a variety of trucks. There is a "mommy" and "baby" truck on almost each page. I have a Master's degree in Elementary Education and am very well versed in Children's Literature. Toddlers will be drawn in to the predictable pattern in the text and the sweet rhymes. I highly recommend this book!

It's not only diggers that get the five star treatment in Where Do Diggers Sleep at Night. Each spread features a different truck or piece of heavy machinery, ranging from dump trucks, garbage trucks, fire trucks, snowplows, bulldozers...well, you get the idea!

This is a good choice to pair with Goodnight Goodnight Construction Site if you're looking for a construction themed bedtime, or filling out your story time schedule. The illustrations feature sweet faces on all the trucks; both "kid" trucks and "mom and dad" trucks are expressive and distinctive. The rhyming is smooth as silk and the rhythm is easy, marking this as a good choice for bedtime themed story times.

This books true home will be at bedside though, where the muted color palette will be just the thing to send little transportation fans off to dreamland. For all those young ones who wonder where all the trucks go at night, this book gives a whimsical answer that is sure to delight. The final page, which shows a young boy sleeping in bed, delivers a resounding payoff as we learn where all his trucks go at night.

This is a fun, sleepy, read aloud that is an enthusiastic recommend for any young truck fan's bedtime collection.

My 2.5 year old son loves this book. We just got it today and we've already read it quite a few times. The illustrations are lovely and the text flows off the tongue easily. I'm sure this will be a favorite for quite some time. It won't be long before I have the whole book memorized (ha!)

"Where do Diggers Sleep at Night?" is a wonderful addition to classic bedtime stories like "Goodnight Moon". Charming verse and illustrations-- a must for the homes/schools of young children. Lots of phrase patterns that could be repeated and played with-- "where do dishes, wagons, cars, etc sleep at night?" As a retired Kdgr/First grade teacher, I love this book! It would have been in the front of my classroom bookshelf and a part of many writing experiences... not just for the guys either. Plus, my grandchildren love it!

My little boy is obsessed with trucks, cranes, monster trucks, etc. and he LOVES this book! We read it every night before bed and he is now "reading" me the story since he knows it by heart! He loves the little boy in the bed at the end, and thinks it's him and all of his trucks in the picture.

This has quickly become a favorite for bedtime. After we read Night Night Construction Site every night I knew I had to find an alternative to give myself a break. This book is very sweet, and it has Mommy trucks which is really fun for Moms.The pictures are really sweet, but the words can be a bit of a tongue-twister for tired parents. This book has been a big hit.

There's something really weird about the meter of the rhymes in this book. Some pages are fine and lend themselves perfectly to being read aloud. Others are flat-out awkward. (Looking at you, fire truck page, and your "super-bright night lights.")

This pales in comparison to Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site. If you're looking for a rhyming book about trucks going to sleep, that's the one you want. Not this one.

The drawings are cute, though.

Our almost-2-year-old LOVES this book. The pictures are wonderful and the text is fun. Five stars for both. Unfortunately, however, the book arrived with pages already falling out, and they have continued to come loose-- we've had to tape the entire thing back together, and we've only had it about a week (and no, it's not that our little guy is pulling the pages out). I wish I could give separate ratings for the content and the construction. Printers, please give this book the quality construction it deserves!

This is a great book. I bought it for my niece who is currently obsessed with diggers, and she reads it at least 5 times a day. She is only 2, but can already read along with the words because she loves it and reads it so often! Great drawings. Getting the hardcover was a good choice. Very very pleased with my purchase.

My grandson, age 3, loves trucks and doesn't love going to sleep. This is his favorite GO TO SLEEP book for bedtime. Its really cute and just enough words for a toddler; sweet story.
