The Lovereading4Kids comment

This book will be heaven for digger devotees, and a dream come true for their parents too. A busy day on the motorway is drawing to a close: the various vehicles have been working hard – tipper truck, concrete mixer, backhoe loader et al – but now it’s time for the roadwork building friends to head for bed. As the bright lights of the motorway are swapped for the quiet blues and purples of a nightime sky, and the vehicles tucked up in their yard, readers too will be put in the mood for snuggling down. Claire Freedman clearly understands the music of the trucks as well as any young fan and with its cast of bright but realistically described and illustrated vehicles this is the ideal bedtime book for machine-mad youngsters. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Beep Beep Beep Time for Sleep! by Claire Freedman

A team of sleepy vehicles make their way home from a busy day constructing a new motorway... Best-selling author Claire Freedman creates another beautifully lyrical bedtime story as we join a group of sleepy road-building machines in their night-time routine. Coupled with bright imagery from Richard Smythe, and onomatopoeic interludes, Beep Beep Beep Time For Sleep! is the ideal read for any child’s bedtime wind-down.
