Where Do Diggers Sleep at Night? – by Brianna Caplan Sayres, Illustrated by Christian Slade; Random House, 2012.
Format: Picture Book
What did you like about the book? This book is just plain adorable! There are diggers, tow trucks, fire trucks, giant cranes, tractors all getting ready for bed after a long day’s work. Their dads and moms are putting them to bed. The rhyming text compliments with words that are perfectly matched to the individual machine. And the colorful, imaginative illustrations give human characteristics to each machine.
