The Lovereading4Kids comment

0-5 years. The perfect book for any machine-mad child. Diggers, tractors, fire-engines, cranes, bulldozers, dumper trucks and more are vividly described in cheerful rhymes which pick up and celebrate the sounds of the machines.. Glorious double page spreads capture the scale of the different vehicles and the places that they work. And it all ends with a soothing night time scene of all the machines at rest. Perfect for bedtime! The accompanying CD adds a brilliant reading of it, completely with mechanical sounds. (2+)

Synopsis

Dig Dig Digging by Margaret Mayo

Diggers are good at dig, dig, digging. Scooping up the earth and lifting and tipping. They make huge holes with their dig, dig, digging. They can work all day. With fantastic big, bold pictures, and bouncy rhythmic text, this is sure to be a big hit with little digger-lovers everywhere. And it's not just for digger-lovers, because it's jam-packed with dumper trucks, bulldozers, fire engines, and much more!
