Nighty Night Construction Trucks

Your little truck lover’s new favorite bedtime book!  Complete with read along highlighted words, easy rhyming, and wonderful illustrations.
Truck lovers will have fun following the construction trucks as they go through their bedtime routine and even more fun when they are asked to help tuck in each truck for a good night’s sleep.

VROOM and ZOOM with mighty and might,
all day long they’ve worked hard on the site.

I
t’s the end of the day; the sun’s not as bright,
the
whistle TOOT TOOTS, it’s time for goodnight.

The construction trucks are tired and sleepy after a long day of work on the construction site.  This cute rhyming story invites the child to help the trucks go to sleep by tucking them in and wishing sweet dreams to the little kitty.

The background music is engaging yet soothing enough to ready your child for a cozy night’s sleep.  Those not quite yet ready to fall asleep can enjoy the “match the truck” activities at the end of the app.
