6.5 / 7.0

There are some “classic” books that are classic for a reason, and for me this is one of them. It’s wildly popular because it’s truly that good. The clever, rhyming text clips along at a great pace and is simultaneously both instructive in its vocabulary and soothing as a going to bed book. The illustrations are phenomenon as well, and simultaneously detailed and beautifully stylized. Even if you don’t particularly love construction vehicles, I think you’d still truly enjoy this book.

Who Illustrated Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site

illustrator
Tom Lichtenheld

I make books for kids and people who used to be kids. My favorite activity is drawing (surprise!), my favorite food is chocolate, and my favorite sport is ping-pong. When I’m not making books, I like to get other peoples’ kids all wound up, then send them home to their parents.
