I read it to Dylanloves aged 3 aged 3

Dylan has loved this book from the moment it arrived! He wanted to read it right away and has read it daily ever since. It makes the perfect bedtime story with a good amount of learning threw in too. The story follows that machines that are coming to the end of their day as they go through their own bedtime routines. Dylan loved looking at the pictures and telling me how the machines and him do the same things before bedtime. He loved learning about how all the machines do their jobs and what makes each one different. He knew a few of the names before we read the book but he now knows every name that is inside the book. The pictures in the book are clear, bright and colourful. They are well drawn and very attractive to Dylan. He is learning to read himself and the book works very well for reading with him as he tries to sound out the words and sentences thanks to the rhyming and repetition of the book. He feels much more independent when he tries reading new words and they are similar in sound to ones he knows and reads in a better rhythm.  We both loved the book and would recommend it for young children

A great bedtime book. The Sleepy vehicles go home ready for bed, after a busy day working. Even though it's about machines and vehicles, its a nice book for boys or girls, my 2 year old daughter really enjoys it. The illustrations are bold, bright and colourful, and the rhyming helps the text flow well. My daughter enjoyed telling me what the vehicles in the book were called. We both enjoyed the book.

Every night since 'Beep beep beep Time for sleep! arrived it's been the bedtime book of choice, both my four year old daughter and almost two year old son love the story.
They love the colourful illustrations, the rhyming story and learning the names of all the machines and vehicles, it's a perfect way to encourage them to bed down for the night from their own busy day.
Reading this story to them both is a pleasure, it's opened up lots of conversations and learning opportunities for us and I'm particularly impressed that the books illustrations are diverse making the book appeal to both girls and boys.
This book has already become a firm favourite on our bookshelf and will be enjoyed for years to come.

My 3.5 year old and I both love this book. It's the perfect book for the little ones that may struggle with going to sleep at night, as the book explains all about the machines busy day & how they have to rest and sleep after a long day, just like us! We loved the bold & colourful illustrations and the way that the book is a rhyming story.

A fantastic and colourful book about all sorts of different vehicles. The book follows many different construction vehicles throughout their day on the building site and then their finishing work for the night and going off to bed. My little one loves learning about vehicles and he loved the book. I'm sure I even learned a new type of digger The rhyming sentences give a real sing song feel to the story and makes it flow really well. We thoroughly enjoyed the book and come back to it again and again.

A brilliant bedtime story that we found in our local library. Observe different machinery hard at work and then winding down for bedtime.
A colourful, diverse, rhyming read.

We won this book in a Toppsta giveaway and couldn't have been more pleased with it. The boys love anything with wheels and the potential to make a lot of noise, and so they loved hearing about what the construction vehicles got up to during the day. Even better though, the book acts as a gentle route into bedtime - the hard work and noise of the construction site becomes a sleepy placed filled with vehicles going about their last tasks of the day and settling into their own beds for the night. My boys are always a little too excited to sleep after a good book, but this had a natural progression that made them quite sleepy too. They loved the rhyming couplets and bright, colourful pictures, so we'd call this a winner all round!!

This book was chosen by all the children I work with - several of them are really good readers.  It was chosen because the children were attracted by the cover initially.  They all liked the open-up pages with one child saying that it was the longest flap she had ever seen!  All of them liked the rhymes.  One said "I loved it, especially ending it with 'Sweet dreams'".

My nephew has this book and I have read it to him over and over again, it comes out even when it's not bedtime. He loves construction and is often walking around his house in a builders hat, this book was right up his street. He enjoyed telling me what the machines on each page were doing - lots of wonderful talking and engagement with this lovely story
