From the creators of the luminous GOOD NIGHT ENGINES comes an energetic good-morning book filled with short, rhyming text that fairly bounces off the page, lots of onomatopoeia, and bright, vibrant close-ups of all kinds of vehicles and aircraft. School buses, garbage trucks, street sweepers, helicopters, and more crank up their noisy motors as a little boy climbs out of bed and starts his day. No little engine lover should be without a copy of this winsome book, as dynamic and peppy as its companion was soothing and sleepy.
In this imaginative, inviting bedtime book, lyrical verse tells of various vehicles winding down for the night and "rolling off to bed." On alternate spreads, luminous paintings depict a little boy playing with toy engines in his bedroom as well as life-sized engines in the outside world. The soothing text and large, up-close pictures of trucks, planes, and fire engines, among others, will make this a favorite bedtime story of all toddlers and preschoolers who are fascinated with things that go.
