Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site by Sherri Duskey Rinker
Recently I reviewed Jamie Lee Curtis's My Brave Year of Firsts and complained about the awkward rhythms and rhymes. This book, Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site, doesn't have any of that awkwardness. Instead, it falls off your tongue effortlessly, making it a pleasing read-aloud.
In addition, it's a boy book. Little boys love trucks and bulldozers, cranes and cement mixers, and each vehicle in this story behaves very much like a little boy--albeit responsible, hard-working little boys.
If you have a group of little boys in your babysitting co-op, introduce them to Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site. You can even show them this video by way of a teaser:
