Good Night Engines

Also available in:

In this imaginative, inviting bedtime book, lyrical verse tells of various vehicles winding down for the night and "rolling off to bed." On alternate spreads, luminous paintings depict a little boy playing with toy engines in his bedroom as well as life-sized engines in the outside world. The soothing text and large, up-close pictures of trucks, planes, and fire engines, among others, will make this a favorite bedtime story of all toddlers and preschoolers who are fascinated with things that go.
