Bears bed down for the night, why not bulldozers? Rinker's delightfully rhyming text is perfectly illustrated by Tom Lichtenheld and is a dream of a bedtime story for young construction fans. "Spinning, churning all day long,/ Cement Mixer sings his whirly song./ now (yawn!) he's weary and so dizzy,/ From the fun that keeps him busy." So he takes a bath, slows his drum, and goes to sleep. A builder's version of "Goodnight, Moon," this story is a lovely wind-down for kids and their grown-ups after a busy day.
