About the Book

This board book edition of Sayres' original things-that-go bedtime story presents all the strikingly familiar bedtime rituals of diggers, dump trucks, snow plows, tractors, and more. Full color.

Book Synopsis

Truck-obsessed toddlers will want to make the diggers, tractors, fire engines, and more featured in this fun-filled construction tale part of their nightly bedtime routines!

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.

This book is a treasure in our home. When my youngest (now 4) was tiny this book was his favorite, we read it at least once every day. I knew the story by heart and would recite it to him at nap time. He has had a bit of a speech delay, and was really shy about talking, but he was so excited about the pictures of the mom and baby, or dad and baby trucks that he would tell his own little stories about what they were doing. This book and others like it have helped us to come a long way in his language. This book is colorful and theres so much to look at in the pictures, every child I've read it to sees something different. It really brings out the love of stories in kids. We still read this book , and have added others of this collection to our library. It's definatly a win for any child who likes trucks.

My four-year-old and I love this book. The story is great and the illustrations are charming. Many of the pictures of the cartoon digger and his or her child digger have an old fashioned, americana feel that is as rewarding to the parent as much as a child. highly recommend! :)
