Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site

Booklist


From Booklist, Copyright (c) American Library Association. Used with permission.

*Starred Review* To say that a book makes you yawn well, it's usually not a compliment. But in the case of bedtime books, it's high praise and well deserved by this engaging picture book. As the sun sets on a construction site, five big, tough trucks settle in for the night. After placing one last beam, hardworking Crane Truck folds his boom, grins sleepily, and tucks himself in for the night. Cement Mixer takes a bath before pulling up his chute and beginning to dream. Tired Dump Truck dims his lights and (loudly) snores. Nearby, sleepy Bulldoze. curls up in his soft dirt bed. while Excavator sets down his scoop and falls asleep. Rinker writes her first book in rhyming, rhythmic verses that read aloud well. Deceptively simple, they manage to be simultaneously absorbing and soporific. Lichtenheld, who illustrated Duck! Rabbit! (2009) and Shark vs. Train (2010), contributes dynamic oil-pastel illustrations ranging from comical close-ups of anthropomorphic trucks to lyrical scenes of the construction site and city skyline at dusk. With strong lines and effective use of shading, the scenes offer plenty of visual details for children to discover. Even the endpapers combine beautiful design with stealthy wit. A standout picture book, especially for those who like wheels with their dreams.--Phelan, Caroly. Copyright 2010 Booklist

Publishers Weekly Review

Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site

Publishers Weekly


A noisy construction site may be an unorthodox setting for a bedtime story, but newcomer Rinker and Lichtenheld (Shark vs. Train) tie together the dual themes neatly. Though more subdued than the trucks that drive Kate and Jim McMullan's I Stink! and I'm Dirty!, these anthropomorphized vehicles have a similar graphic feel and cheerful demeanor. After five machines are first pictured hard at work, they appear against a blazing sky: "The sun has set, the work is done;/ It's time for trucks to end their fun./ So one by one they'll go to bed/ To yawn and rest their sleepy heads,/ Then wake up to another day/ Of rough-and-tough construction play!" Each truck performs one final task before settling down to sleep, with gentle encouragement: "Shh... goodnight, Bulldozer, goodnight." Rinker's rhythmic verse reinforces the vehicles' love of their work (Dump Truck "moves the dirt/ from place to place,/ Then dumps it with a happy face") and, like Lichtenheld's art, deftly balances the story's boisterous and drowsy elements. Truck lovers will happily nod off to the strains of this read-aloud. Ages 4-8. (May) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

It's getting late at the construction site. One by one, the big trucks are preparing for bed. Soothing verse describes each vehicle's last task and special wind-down routine, ending with a personal message: "Shh...goodnight, Cement Mixer, goodnight." Bright-in-the-night yellows, blues, and reds dominate the thoughtfully crafted illustrations. Truck-loving kids will respond to this take on settling down to sleep. (c) Copyright 2011.

K-Gr 1-After each truck completes its work for the day, it cuddles up and says goodnight. Crane Truck raises one last beam and then hugs his teddy and turns on his nightlight. Cement Mixer gives a final spin before snuggling with his blanket. Dump Truck delivers his last load, closes his eyes, and starts to snore. Bulldozer and Excavator follow suit until the entire construction site is tucked in tight. Lichtenheld's detailed and textured illustrations, rendered in wax oil pastels on vellum paper, perfectly complement the fun, rhyming text, cleverly personifying each truck with expressive eyes and amusing details. The bright, golden background changes to pinkish red as the Sun begins to set and then to dark blue when the Moon appears. The repeated refrain, "Shh. goodnight, Crane Truck [Cement Mixer, Dump Truck, Bulldozer, Excavator], goodnight," will invite participation. Recommended for vehicle- and bedtime-themed storytimes, this is sure to be a hit with truck-loving preschoolers.-Rachel Kamin, North Suburban Synagogue Beth El, Highland Park, IL (c) Copyright 2011.

BETWEEN SHADES OF GRAY. By Ruta Sepetys. (Philomel, $17.99.) This haunting novel exposes the horrors of Stalin from the perspective of a 15-year-old Lithuanian girl, evacuated to a camp in Siberia. A "superlative first novel," Linda Sue Park wrote in the Book Review. DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE. By Laini Taylor. (Little, Brown, $18.99.) "A breath-catching romantic fantasy about destiny, hope and the search for one's true self," according to our reviewer, Chelsey Philpot, this high-speed adventure involves love between angel and demon. LEVEL UP. By Gene Luen Yang. Illustrated by Thien Pham. (First Second, $15.99.) Smart, hilarious and affecting, this graphic novel tells the story of an aspiring gastroenterologist and video game enthusiast struggling between realizing his father's dreams and understanding his own ambitions. A MONSTER CALLS. By Patrick Ness. Illustrated by Jim Kay. (Candlewick, $16.99.) Based on an idea from the late Siobhan Dowd, this novel tackles the subject of a young boy dealing with his mother's death. "Powerful medicine," our reviewer wrote, and "a potent piece of art." THE SCORPIO RACES. By Maggie Stiefvater. (Scholastic Press, $17.99.) Based on Celtic myth, this vivid and original fantasy involves magical waterhorses and two riders determined to win the annual Scorpio races. "A complex literary thriller that pumps new blood into a genre suffering from post-"Twilight' burnout," our reviewer said. MIDDLE GRADE AMELIA LOST: The Life and Disappearance of Amelia Earhart. By Candace Fleming. Illustrated. (Schwartz & Wade, $18.99.) Gives children the nuanced, accurate portrait of America's famed pilot they deserve - as well as a good story, impeccably researched. DRAWING FROM MEMORY. Written and illustrated by Allen Say. (Scholastic, $17.99.) Part memoir, part graphic novel, this account from the Caldecott medalist describes how his coming of age in Japan paved his path to children's literature. EVERY THING ON IT. By Shel Silverstein. (HarperCollins, $19.99.) On par with "A Light in the Attic," this posthumous collection of 140 poems makes you miss Silverstein and his seemingly effortless but incomparably funny, touching verse all the more. THE FINGERTIPS OF DUNCAN DORFMAN. By Meg Wolitzer. (Dutton, $16.99.) A novel about the real world of championship Scrabble, with a fantastical twist. Our reviewer, Stefan Fatsis, called it an "empathetic and sometimes farcical exploration of the emotionally confusing lives of preadolescent boys and girls." HEART AND SOUL. Written and illustrated by Kadir Nelson. (Baher & Bray/HarperCollins, $19.99.) "A grand and awe-inspiring survey of the black experience in America," Walter Dean Myers wrote in the Book Review. This is history for children on both an epic and human scale. OKAY FOR NOW. By Gary D. Schmidt. (Clarion, $16.99.)

Written and illustrated by Chris Van Allsburg. (Houghton Mifflin, $18.99.) The bittersweet true story of a 62-year-old teacher who became the first person to barrel over Niagara Falls.

"Reading it is a visual, loopy, absurdist experience," Meg Wolitzer, our reviewer, said. WONDERSTRUCK. Written and illustrated by Brian Selznick. (Scholastic, $29.99.) Telling the story of a boy who searches for his father in New York and the tale of a deaf girl in 1920s Hoboken, Selznick weaves the two into a seamless story that "teaches a respect for the past and for the power of memory to make minds," Adam Gopnik wrote in these pages. PICTURE BOOKS BLACKOUT. Written and illustrated by John Rocco. (Disney/Hyperion, $16.99.) There's no place like New York in a blackout, at least as it's depicted in this gorgeously dreamy landscape of deep midnight blues. The city comes alive after dark at the same time a family becomes aware of the comforts of home in a story about how a community and a family come together when the lights go out. GOODNIGHT, GOODNIGHT, CONSTRUCTION SITE. BySherri Duskey Rinker. Illustrated by Tom Lichtenheld. (Chronicle, $16.99.)

(Candlewick, $15.99.) A bear has lost his hat. A rabbit has stolen it. The bear finds out. From this premise, Klassen has created an inventive book that will have children scratching their heads and then laughing with glee once they "get it." Both story and bear have bite. I MUST HAVE BOBO! By Eileen Rosenthal. Illustrated by Marc Rosenthal. (Atheneum, $14.99.) A melodramatic boy, Willy, and a cat, Earl, both lay claim to a sock monkey. With adorable illustrations and sharp but spare text. ME . . . JANE. Written and illustrated by Patrick McDonnell. (Little, Brown, $15.99.) Jane Goodall, the subject of this pictorial biography, and Patrick McDonnell, author and illustrator, are splendidly matched. Careful scenes captured in watercolors show how Goodall's childhood shaped her adult life. MEADOWLANDS: A Wetlands Survival Story. Written and illustrated by Thomas F. Yezerski. (Farrar, Straus & Giroux, $17.99.) Meticulously researched and expertly drawn, "Meadowlands" is impassioned without being preachy. A fine introduction to our role in environmental devastation and protection. MY NAME IS ELIZABETH. By Annika Dunklee. Illustrated by Matthew Forsythe. (Kids Can Press, $14.95.) The indignity and aggravation of the mispronounced and mistakenly abbreviated name! Elizabeth, a feisty and outspoken girl, addresses those who misaddress her in this artfully drawn tale. OVER AND UNDER THE SNOW. By Kate Messner. Illustrated by Christopher Silas Neal. (Chronicle, $16.99.) A girl and her father are skiing when a red squirrel darts below the snow. Quiet, gentle and incomparably lovely, this book reveals a wintertime world under the surface. POMELO BEGINS TO GROW. By Ramona Bodescu. Illustrated by Benjamin Chaud. Translated by Claudia Bedrick. (Enchanted Lion, $16.95.) A baby elephant's growth spurt also spurs worries. "Funny, smart and idiosyncratic, graceful and intuitive in a way that feels as much dreamed as written," our reviewer, Bruce Handy, said. SAMANTHA ON A ROLL. By Linda Ashman. Illustrated by Christine Davenier. (Margaret Ferguson Books/Farrar, Straus & Giroux, $16.99.) A girl, a pair of new roller skates, a preoccupied parent. This ode to the glorious adventures - if also perils - of benign neglect pairs Ashman's perfectly rhymed text with Davenier's animated, humorous drawings.
