All about it:  

A Cozy Construction Story for Bedtime featuring a Bulldozer and for fans of Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site and Where Do Diggers Sleep at Night?

After a long day of clearing dirt, rocks, and trees, a bulldozer is tired and ready for bed. He lifts up his blade, his spotlights flash on, he rolls through the gate, and lets out a yawn. He heads to the Wiggle and Shake for a bath, then to the Sip and Slurp for some supper, then chooses a bedtime story . . . and soon the bulldozer will be dreaming sweet dreams of finishing his important work!

Opening lines:          

The clearing is done.

The sun disappears.

A bulldozer stops.

He shifts down his gears.

What will kids (and adults) take away after they’ve read it:

Kids will love how bulldozer is just like them in his bedtime routine. From his sleepy yawns, to his bathing, to filling his oil pan (his tummy!)with a nighttime snack, and then snuggling in for a bedtime story, they will see that even bulldozers need a little shut eye.

Adults will love the gentle, rhythmic text and vivid illustrations as they snuggle with their little ones to enjoy this special bedtime story.
