#blogbookaday: Mighty, Mighty Construction Site

30364136.jpgSummary:  “At last—here from the team behind the beloved international bestseller comes a companion to Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site. All of our favorite trucks are back on the construction site—this time with a focus on team-building, friendship, and working together to make a big task seem small! Down in the big construction site, the crew faces their biggest job yet, and will need the help of new construction friends to get it done. Working as a team, there’s nothing they can’t do! The millions of fans of Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site are in for a mighty good time!” (Taken from Goodreads)

Review: It’s a brand new day and there’s a lot of work to be done on the construction site today, so all our favorite trucks from Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site are back and looking for some help to get the job done. This story is filled with teamwork as the trucks work together to finish the job. I was excited to  learn about a few new trucks and what their job is at the construction site and I’m sure kids will be excited too! My only concern is that I have no idea what they actually built at the end of the story – it’s referred to as a building, but it looks like a really cool sculpture to me! And honestly, to me, that’s not what makes this story fun – what makes this story fun is the rhythm and rhyming of the text as you learn about construction vehicles and teamwork.

Personal Reaction: My absolute favorite part of this story is that a few of the machines are specifically referred to as “she” which is awesome! I’m glad the author chose to include female trucks to create a more inclusive story. I know a lot of families who absolutely adore Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site and I think that they would equally love this story with some new characters and lots of really cool information about what construction trucks do on the job!

#blogbookaday (1)This is a new idea I’m trying on my blog this year that was inspired by @donalynbooks and @heisereads – to provide a brief review of a picture book every day of 2018. You’ll get a brief summary of the story, a review of the content, illustrations and theme, my personal reaction to the book and all the pertinent publication information! Enjoy!
