Kid Konnection: Construction Site on Christmas Night

Every weekend, I host a feature called Kid Konnection -- a regular weekly feature about anything related to children's books. This week I'm going to share with you an addition to a popular picture book series that's perfect for the upcoming Christmas holiday!

Summary: VROOM and ZOOM into the holidays with this new Christmas classic from the author of the #1 New York Times bestsellers Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site and Mighty, Mighty, Construction Site!

The trucks are gearing up for Christmas by building a special gift! But, there's a surprise waiting for each of them, too! Presents await for Excavator, Bulldozer, Crane, Dump Truck, and Cement Mixer as each finishes their part of this big, important job and rolls off to a sweet and sleepy goodnight.

Playful rhyming text from the bestselling author of Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site and vibrant illustrations from the acclaimed artist AG Ford make this a perfect gift for construction fans everywhere. -- Chronicle Books

CONSTRUCTION SITE ON CHRISTMAS NIGHT by Sherri Duskey Rinker and Ag Ford is perfect for fans of GOODNIGHT, GOODNIGHT, CONSTRUCTION SITE and MIGHTY, MIGHTY, CONSTRUCTION SITE... and I know there are many fans out there. This adorable picture book shows readers that the trucks have to pull out all the stops to have a "special house" ready for Christmas!

CONSTRUCTION SITE ON CHRISTMAS NIGHT stars many different types of trucks that kids will recognize including a bulldozer, crane, cement mixer, and more! Each truck contributes to this last minute project while collecting its own gifts along the way. The reader is in for a treat when he or she figures out what they are working together to build.

I thought this book was a great way to celebrate the holiday season. I love how the vehicles' presents were not only something they needed, but also something that they very much appreciated. The illustrations were too cute, and I especially liked how the trucks' presents were decorated for the holidays.

CONSTRUCTION SITE ON CHRISTMAS NIGHT is a wonderful addition to an already great series of picture books. Highly recommended!

Thanks to the publisher for providing a review copy of this book.

Vance's favorite book was about trucks so I'm sure he would have loved this.
