GOODNIGHT, GOODNIGHT CONSTRUCTION SITE introduces young readers to the everyday lives of a team of five hard working trucks: crane truck, cement mixer, dump truck, bulldozer, and excavator. A great bedtime read, this story gives children an opportunity to learn:
- The key functions of five construction trucks.
- A basic understanding of team work. The construction job is broken down into individual tasks for each truck, and the trucks work together to get the job done.
- After a day of hard work, every truck needs his rest.
