Dig Dig Digging

Front Cover
Macmillan, 2002 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 32 pages

Busy machines for busy kids!

"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."

Trucks and tractors, fire engines and helicopters-they all like to work hard. But after a long, happy day of beep-beeping and vroom-vrooming, even the busiest engines need to rest. This bright, bouncy, noise-filled book brings together all the vehicles that children adore.

User Review  - wichitafriendsschool - LibraryThing

Simple rhymes describe various large vehicles, such as dump trucks, fire engines, and tractors and the work they do. With bright, lively illustrations and "noisy" rhythmic words, new vocabulary words are introduced by coupling the new with familiar concepts. Read full review
