Construction Vehicles

It seems that every little boy (and some girls) between the ages of 2 and 4, become fascinated with construction vehicles of every kind.
I remember many trips when my young son would suddenly yell from the backseat, "Stop the car!" because he wanted to see the construction trucks on the side of the road.
For those vehicle loving preschoolers, this is a perfect bedtime book.
A read aloud session at the end of the day helps to slow down busy bodies and brains, preparing them for a much needed rest. That goes for the grown-ups too!

Fine Motor Extension Idea:
Before bedtime arrives, have your child use building blocks or an empty shoebox to make a "garage" for the array of construction vehicles, trucks and cars that need to be "tucked in" for the night.
It makes for a quick clean-up routine that's satisfying as well.
