Description

Book Reviews: “A lively, sure-to-please winner . . . Details are perfect, down to the brothers' special bond at the end of the day.” —School Library Journal. “Truck and machinery fans will dig this.” —Kirkus Reviews. “The joyful acrylic illustrations and the sparse, confident text will delight other digger-wannabes.” —Booklist. “The book's most distinctive note, however, lies in having the narrator employ his construction dream world as a means of connecting with his sibling, rather than escaping from him.” —Publishers Weekly. A picture book for the very young that celebrates a child's excitement for construction vehicles "Honk the horn! Flash the ights! Scoop the rocks! Push the mud!" A little boy imagines driving a great big digger-scooping and pushing mud to make a playground for his baby brother. Children are fascinated with bulldozers, backhoes, payloaders-diggers of all shapes and sizes. In this playful picture book, simple alliterative language and bold, colorful images capture a child's love of building and creating.
