Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Cheryl Peterson
Any child who is fascinated by large trucks and machinery will enjoy this book. A variety of "diggers" are vibrantly illustrated scooping, crashing, digging and building. The text is simple rhyme, "Diggers are noisy, strong, and big. Diggers can carry and push and dig." The final page features a picture dictionary of "digger parts" with simple explanations for various parts such as pistons and levers. Another book available by the same author is Roaring Rockets.
