My almost 2 yr old loves this book. The illustrations are beautifully done & eye catching. For any little boy who loves construction equipment, this is a must have book.

The Nook version of this book is Nothing like the hardcover. I gave it one star, because Barnes & Noble was nice enough to credit my account back the money I spent on it after I didn't like it. First of all, it doesn't read to you, which in my opinion is the only reason to get a kids Nook book. Second of all, the color picture is an 1/8 of the size in the real book. The hardcover version has full color illustrations and the Nook has small rectanglular pictures. Bummer.

nook version is horrible! half the pages have no pictures. when there are pictures, they are very small. pages with words only will not hold the interest of toddlers! don't waste your $ on the nook version!

What a sweet and gentle bedtime story...about cranes, excavators, dump trucks, and bulldozers finishing their day's work and bedding down for the night...with teddy bear, blanket, and even snoring!

When I reviewed the book before I purchased the book, it was animated. When I opened it on my Nook tablet there was no animation. Story is cute.

I purchased this book and found it to be a total waste of money. It reads length wise and I think it should be width wise. The pictures are cut off and the writing goes over two pages with no pictures on every second page. Useless book for toddler. Story would be good if it was properly formatted otherwise don't waste your money. I sent a complaint in and got no answer back.

My 17 month old loves this book and we read it every night (for now). Its well written with cute rhyming phrases and the illustrations are great. Reminds me other favorites - the Little Blue Truck books.

The book has talks about big tough trucks that play hard all day settling in for bed. The illustrations make the work trucks look friendly and to which a child can relate. The hushed tones and rhythmic story makes me drowsy as I read it to our son. He insists we read it every night at bedtime.

Great book especially if your little one is into all things construction related as my grandson is! He enjoyed the pictures and what the characters had to say!

My two year old son loves this book--he says the lines with me! It's a very cute story of each piece of construction equipment working hard and then getting ready for bed. The illustrations are beautiful and thoughtful. A must-have!

this is an absolutely fabulous book. i have purchased several for gifts. my 2 1/2 year old just loves when i read "construction site" to him. he has also learned the name of many trucks and identifies them on the road. i highly recommend this book.

I bought this for my 2 year old grandaughter who loves heavy equipment.

My two young grandsons (2 and 4) are passionate about vehicles, so I was disappointed that they were not very enthusiastic about this book. One major problem is that is has been poorly formatted for the Nook. The final sentences and even syllables are often not completed on the same page, making it hard to follow.

This is a wonderful story for a quiet before bed read. However, having also read the hardcover, the ebook's pictures are not as grand; they are smaller than screen size. This book also doesn't have the "read to me" option. That being said the story itself is a great read.

This is an adorable bedtime story, but the formatting for the Nook is horrible. The illustrations are lovely but you can barely see them. I don't understand why this wasn't formatted as a Nook Kids book rather than just an e-book. The point of these types of stories are the illustrations half of which seem cut off. Wish I could get my money back very disappointed with the purchase.

Cute story. I agree with other posts...NOT formatted well. 6 pages long and very small pictures. Very disappointed. :(

My almost 3 year old really enjoys this book and asks for it often. My only complaint is that the pictures are too small on the Nook. It seems like it could have been formatted better.

My son (nearly 3) loves this book! It helps quiet him as we get ready for bed, and he loves to say goodnight to each truck. If your little guy (or girl) likes trucks this book is a must!

Beautiful illustrations along with diggers and a sweet bedtime story. A perfect fit for my active 3 year old.

One by one, the big machines of the construction site wrap up their work for the day and head for home. Illustrations mingle with text to provide a lovely picture of all in the construction world shutting down and going to sleep.¿Pushing with his mighty blade,Bulldozer works to smooth the grade.He clears the way to level ground,And fills the air with thunderous sound (rooaar!)No one¿s as tough and strong as he,But now he¿s sleepy as can be.¿

A fun book about what all of the construction vehicles do before they say goodnight.The text is simple and rhyming good for beginner readers and all boys would love this one, my grandson sure did.

My 2 year old got this as a Christmas present. He absolutely loves it and the illustration is fabulous. We read 5-8x a day. I'm buying him the board book because I don't want him to tear the hard cover pages, which he already tore 1 page.

Cute book about the construction vehicles as they end their work day and go to sleep. The illustrations are wonderful. Look closely at them for more fun. A delightful book!
