Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
11/01/2013
PreS-Gr 1—Digger is a dino kid who has trouble listening. Whenever someone tells him something, he often hears a rhyming word instead. In the first book, Momasaur tells him to clean his room with the aid of his friend, Stego. Stego instructs him to hang his jacket on the hook, but Digger puts it on a book. In Cake Mistake, Digger and his dad are asked to do an important errand, but can't find the cake shop. When Dadasaur says, "We take a right here," Digger hears: "A BITE here?!" This simple form of malapropism is evident in both books and adds to the comic nature of the stories. These books lend themselves to lap reading; the repetition and the lively illustrations will keep the younger audience's attention. Emerging readers may delight in the plays on words, but some will just become exasperated with the dino's antics. Extra purchases where easy readers are needed.—Jasmine L. Precopio, Fox Chapel Area School District, Pittsburgh, PA

    Disappointment

    Its not worth the money. The first Digger book was funny and I expected the same with this one, but its not. My 6 year old daughter and I both were disappointed.

    A fun rhyming story.

    Since I got the first book in the series for free, I couldn't resist getting this for my son for Christmas.

    Digger is going with his Dadasaur to pick up a cake. I loved all the rhyming words so you had to pay attention to the words on each page. My 8 year old loved the simple story and kept giggling.

    I definitely will buy more of these books as they are published.
