Bedtime for Little Bulldozer
Author: Elise Broach; illustrations by Barry E. Jackson
Little Bulldozer struggles to fall asleep in Bedtime for Little Bulldozer, a sweet and clever bedtime picture book by New York Times bestselling author Elise Broach with illustrations by Barry E. Jackson.
Falling asleep isn’t always easy, especially for a loud and rumbling little bulldozer. Once he finally gets into bed, he can’t fall asleep no matter what he tries to do: has another drink of oil, gathers his favorite stuffies, and even reads his favorite book. Still, something’s not right, and only his sisters—a steamroller and a crane—can make it better. This reassuring and clever bedtime story is for young ones who need a bit of help “bull-dozing” off to sleep.

"Imagine How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight? with a bulldozer instead of dinosaurs and you’ve got the gist of this book. . . . What a fun and funny ride it is! A traditional not-ready-for bedtime story with heavy machinery, which takes it to another level. A solid purchase for most libraries."—School Library Journal
"Soothing. . . the illustrations are sweetly humorous. While construction-equipment bedtime books have become a genre in and of themselves, there's still room for one more good-hearted tale of antsy, agitated equipment."--Kirkus Reviews
"Little Bulldozer is disarming in his cuteness . . . this is a fun premise that many kids—and parents—will relate to."—Booklist
