Description

The bedtime rituals of little diggers and dump trucks at a construction site should be quite familar to kids saying goodnight. Young readers will identify with fire engines, tractors and monster trucks as the vehicles ask for one more story while their mommy trucks tuck them in, and their daddy trucks sing a goodnight song. Children who can't get enough of trucks will love Brianna Caplan Sayres things-that-go bedtime story.




About the Author

BRIANNA CAPLAN SAYRES didn't know anything about trucks—until her two-year-old son started to teach her everything about them. Now she and her husband put two boys to bed each night in a New Jersey home filled with diggers, dump trucks, and fire engines. This is Brianna's first picture book. You can visit her on the Web at BriannaCaplanSayres.com.
