Dinosaur Dig! by Ms. Penny Dale


Dinosaur Dig! by Ms. Penny Dale

Dinosaur Dig! has everything that gets small boys excited - diggers, dinosaurs and dirt plus a bit of counting thrown in for good measure. Bursting with energy and noise and with a splashy, surprising ending, it's an absolute riot of a book.


A perfect picture book. Let me count the ways: Dinosaurs - tick; Diggers - tick; counting - tick; proper story - tick. And here's the bonus point: endpapers where the front one gives all the dinosaurs their proper names and the back one ALL THE DIGGERS! Book Maven
