Horn Book Review

This bedtime story from the Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site creators is another gem powered by well-crafted rhymes. This time it's a train yard that needs to be packed up for the night, and animals are the crew: a polar bear fills the reefer with ice cream, a monkey juggles toys into the boxcar, etc. The calming midnight-blue-bathed illustrations glow as if by starlight.
