Bedtime Story: Three Cheers for Kid McGear! by Sherri Duskey Rinker & Illustrated by A.G. Ford


Read for: Children's Books/ Borrowed books

Synopsis: "From the New York Times bestselling author that brought you Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site and Mighty, Mighty Construction Site comes a heartwarming and inspiring tale featuring the first female character to join the core construction crew!

She might be small, but she's got it all—she's Kid McGear, Skid Steer! Kid McGear is the newest truck to join the Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site crew and she's eager to help with even the roughest and toughest construction work. But when a steep cliff puts the other trucks in danger, can the new Kid on the site prove she's big enough for even this big, big job?"

My Review: We have loved the Construction Site series in our house. Even though Munchkin has outgrown picture books, these still remain on our shelf and each time a new one comes out it is added to the list. This one is a great addition to the shelf, we get to add a new truck and it is little and a girl! I love the way Rinker uses all the attachments for the skid steer to show the variety of jobs it can do. Of course also having a little truck on a job can be a benefit. Little construction fans will love this story and be able to relate to it as they start to try to take on tasks themselves like setting tables and putting their own laundry away. They may be small but they can get the job done!

My Rating: We love these books, they are great for readers of all ages. The fun rhyme and repetition will keep the youngest readers engaged and  it also helps with the older readers reading out loud. It had a great story about even the littlest worker can help. I give it a rating of Four Paws!

Good Night! Sweet Dreams!


  1. This looks so cute! My little one is just starting to realize that books are good for something other than fiddling with the pages. I'll have to look into getting a copy of this.

    1. Definitely check out the other books in this series, Goodnight Goodnight Construction Site, Mighty Mighty Construction Site and Construction Site on Christmas Night! We read all of them so many times! It is such a fun age when little ones start really getting into books and stories, you really get to see their interests and personalities emerge with the books they like. Enjoy it because they grow out of wanting to read with you so quickly!
