Beep Beep Beep Time for Sleep by Claire Freedman and Richard Smythe (Simon and Schuster Children's Books)

Stepping away from all things alien and underpant-y for a moment, Claire Freedman has cooked up a glorious little bedtime tale featuring lots of busy little folk and a whole construction site full of heavy machinery.
In "Beep Beep Beep, Time for Sleep" all the machines trundle, chug and rattle through their daily chores. Laying asphalt, smoothing out gravel and drilling big holes is all in a day's work for these big machines.
One by one as the day draws to a close, we say goodnight to each of the diggers, tippers, rollers and back-hoes as they're put away for a well-earned rest, ready for another day's activity once the sun comes up again.
It's a gentle lullaby of a book, perfect for your would-be road engineers.
"Beep Beep Beep, Time for Sleep" is released on the 11th February 2016 from Simon and Schuster Publishing.
