Goodnight Digger

Publisher: Puffin Books

Review

It’s time for bed. A little boy tidies away his toy vehicles and he says goodnight to each of them in turn - his train, plane, bus, and all his other vehicles - before he finally says 'goodnight' to his favourite toy – his big yellow digger.

As he gets ready for bed, he begins to imagine that he is inside his toy helicopter, his tractor, his boat, and of course his digger. Finally he gets into bed, curling up next to his precious digger, and goes to sleep.

This soothing story about a much-loved favourite toy includes plenty of rhyme and repetition, making it ideal for reading aloud together. Nick East's bright, bold illustrations feature lots of stars and twilight tones, which are perfect for bedtime.
