UPDATE: It looks like there is at least one "she" in the sequel. Yay!
We've added a couple of more grandsons since then, and though Mommy is now a full-time mom and I no longer get to partake in all of the traditional naptime rituals with our 4 or 2 year old grandsons (big brother's a 3rd grader already!), I went ahead and bought this for the youngest's 2nd birthday. Whether it's naptime or bedtime, the calming way this book is written coupled with the cute illustrations of the vehicles yawning, shutting their eyes, etc., is bound to be a sure-fire winner for any parent or grandparent tasked with helping a youngster to "Turn off your engines, stop your tracks, relax your wheels, your stacks, and backs. No more huffing and puffing, Team: It's time to rest your heads and dream. Construction site, all tucked in tight, the day is done, turn off the light. Great work today! Now... shh... goodnight." Even "tough" kids need their rest too!
Especially if read in a quiet, soothing tone, I can't think of a more perfect bedtime book. You know how seeing someone yawn usually makes you yawn yourself? I think that's the exact effect the illustrations will have... I'm just envious of my son and daughter-in-law for getting to be the ones to read it to him! (And if I raised my son right, he'll be reading this to my first grandDAUGHTER who's arriving in October in just a couple of years as well!)
But even aside from just peaking his interest (which does there even need to be more!) but I enjoy reading this! I love the way it’s written. It flows so well. The illustrations are great.
It’s fun, it’s perfect for bedtime to settle my rowdy boy down. I just love it because he says goodnight to each vehicle with me and then we acknowledge everyone is sleeping and now it’s his turn.
Definetely one of our favorite books! And 1 that I think should be in every boy collection

A great short story at bedtime complete with yawns to settle the little ones down.
To add, I believe it was this book that helped our son get a grasp of intonation when reading.
Lovely drawings and the words kept making me yawn, very relaxing.
An excellent bedtime story.
