Personally, I prefer Goodnight Construction Site -- the rhymes flow and were perfectly easy to put into song on the very first read-thru. That said, it *is* just a jumble of pages anthropomorphizing random construction equipment, so ... your mileage may vary.
Dream Train provides a lot more diversity of scenery -- a whole lot more characters (animals, yay!) to look at and each page is different (whereas Construction Site follows a more rigid pattern); however, a lot of the rhymes didn't come naturally to me ... i.e., it took multiple readings for me to memorize the appropriate ways to apply emphasis in order to get all the rhymes right in a song. That said, I know not everyone sings their books (I'm a quirky dude) so no big deal.
It's the perfect small size to take with us in his diaper bag. I'm not worried about ruining this book with normal wear and tear.
The quality of the print is wonderful. It's pictures are beautiful and the print is easy to read.
The great thing about this set is that you cannot purchase these books separately as a board book. These are only available separately as a paperback, hardback, kindle, or watered down version of Goodnight, Goodnight as a sound book.
What I love most about them is that my 3 year-old who is a planes, trains, and automobiles kind of guy will sit down and listen to the story from start to finish. He loves to point out all the different trucks and "remind" me that he has one just like it. Likewise with Steam Train, he tells me about the engineer and the caboose and everything else kids love about trains. Reading is perfect for the 3-4 age range. The story is not too short, but it's not too long. Like Goldilocks, the story length is just right. Both books are also great at encouraging him that it's time to go to sleep and that bedtime and going to sleep is okay because trucks do it too. I purchased the set for 12.97, so for 13 dollars I have two great board books that my busy, always on the go, son will sit down and enjoy.
