He gets really excited about pointing random things out in the illustrations while I read anything, which I love, but not so much at bed time because I'm trying to calm him. He pointed things out in this book at first, but when I said the first, "good night, truck, goooodnight" he fell into the rhythm and instead of going bonkers for anything but the words he was waiting for that line about each truck. And he said each one calmer and calmer following my suit.
This is definitely going to be a nightly ritual.
At approximately 24 glossy board book pages, this book is a wonderful book for little boys or girls to read in the morning or at night. The story reads in a rhyming way which I love because I think it makes it more fun to read, especially if you are reading it all the time! Each set of pages contains about two sentences that ask kids to imagine how a certain type of truck goes to bed at night. The types of trucks mentioned in the book are diggers, dump trucks, garbage trucks, monster trucks, fire engines, snowplows, car transporters, tow trucks, cranes, tractors and semis so it would be perfect for kids with interests in one or more of those trucks. I think this book is great to feed kids' imaginations because it helps them wonder what trucks do after they've put in a long day's work. A lot of the pages even show the daddy or mommy trucks putting their kid trucks to bed.
My kids love this book and I'm glad I purchased it because we have gotten a lot of use out of it so far! It makes a great bedtime story but can also be read during the day. If you have kids who love reading about big trucks or you just want a good bedtime story, I highly recommend this book!
The colors are vibrant but still calming and appropriate for bedtime, but still beautiful. The book is a standard board book material and high quality. The illustrations are beautiful and fun. We all love this.
The story imagines how every type of truck addresses bedtime. Like the photo shows the momma excavator hugging her baby from front to backhoe for his goodnight hug. The rhyming pattern is fun and easy to read, and my son loves it.
I would recommend this book as part of any early toddler book collection, even if they aren't truck crazy! I just purchased one for a baby shower because we love it so much.
