A sweet book with rhyming text. The story written with definite rhythm reads like a poem. Her use of anthropomorphism personifies the construction trucks as they end their day. Each truck is named with brief explanations of their duties. Best for Kindergarten students.

In Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site by Sherri D. Rinker and illustrated by Tom Lichtenheld there are many examples of figurative language. One of them is rhyme. Every line has rhyme like “load and road”in it and it makes the story more fun to read. There is also personification like “his engine snores” which make the story more easy to relate to and it gives the book more human like characteristics. Onomatopoeia is also in this book. Sound words like “crrrunch” help the reader hear what the author is trying to get them to hear. Because Sherri D. Rinker uses figurative language, it makes this book very playful, fun, and a great book for people of all ages to read. SR
