Where Do Diggers Sleep at Night? Hardcover – Picture Book, January 1, 2012
Discover what bedtime looks like for the snowplows, dump trucks, giant cranes, and more that dot the pages of this irresistible construction story. Just like you and me, the vehicles in this story get tuckered out after a long day of hard work and need to quiet down and settle in for sweet dreams. Young readers will surely identify as these trucks ask for one more story while their parents sing them a goodnight song and send them off to bed.
With a sweet rhyme scheme and an illustration style that’s perfect for nighttime rituals, Where Do Diggers Sleep at Night? and its things-that-go companions—Where Do Steam Trains Sleep At Night?, Where Do Jet Planes Sleep At Night?, Where Do Speedboats Sleep at Night?, and Where Do Diggers Celebrate Christmas?—will leave vehicle-loving kids snuggled up and satisfied.

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.
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.
