Every year while gathering gift ideas for this guide, I heavily consider reserving an annual spot just for Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site. It is an extremely sweet bedtime story for kids that is beautifully illustrated and fun for moms and dads to read. We featured it in our 2015 guide and if you haven’t already, do yourself a favor and pick that book up for a little one that you love.
But also get this slightly newer holiday-time sequel from the original author and illustrator: Construction Site on Christmas Night. Excavator, dozer and the rest of the gang are all there and this time they’re each opening up a Christmas gift just for them. This one is a no-brainer if you know a kid who loves trucks and equipment. You can grab the hardcover on Amazon for around $13.
