My oldest son was obsessed with construction vehicles when he was little. We had Tonka trucks galore. He played for hours in the sandbox scooping and dumping dirt and sand and rocks.
I bought him books about construction trucks, and we always looked for new ones when we visited the library. He would have loved Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site.
