Since we started The Virtual Book Club for kids one of our favourite themes to do with our preschoolers has been the Construction Theme. Alongside being our favourite theme it’s also featuring one of our favourite books Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site by Sherri Rinker. So here you go your week plan for Construction Theme for Preschoolers.
Virtual Book Club for Kids Featured book Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site
We have included links to the books on Amazon. If you purchase via those links we may earn a small commission.
This week’s featured book is Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site by Sherri Rinker. A favourite with our kids and has been since they were tots.
In this delightful book as the sun sets and the day ends the trucks and diggers on the construction site get to say goodnight. It’s a lovely book to read whatever the time of day but especially nice at bedtime too.
