A crew of dogs working on a construction site make for a delightful picture book written and illustrated in full-color by James Horvath.
In Dig, Dogs, Dig: A Construction Tail, Duke heads up a pack of construction worker dogs as they suit up in boots, gloves, goggles and dirt-digging suits to build a park! The dogs get to use all kinds of cool equipment—a crane, a dump truck, a loader, a bulldozer, and a cement truck. Most fun of all they get to dig. Like all dogs, they love digging.
Work is interrupted when the dogs find something deep at the bottom of a hole. Children will love discovering what is buried in the ground.
