Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Dotlich's text makes good use of assonance and internal rhymes to support new readers' decoding skills in this story about a dinosaur who needs to clean up his bedroom before he can go outside to play ball. Momasaur is displeased with the state of Digger's room, and when he asks if he can go play ball with his friend, Stego, she replies sternly, "No….Your room is a mess." Digger mistakes the word "mess" for "yes," but Stego corrects him, and in a spirit of friendly generosity, offers to help him clean up. Digger continues to fail to attend carefully to others' words as he confuses Stego's helpful directions, mishearing "hook" as "book" and "bones" as "stones." Then Stego becomes distracted and mistakes Momasaur's final direction to put "hats" away as putting "cats" away. Digger catches the mistake as the poor cats meow from within an armoire, and then they quickly free them and tidy up the hats before going outside to play ball. Cartoonish illustrations seem like they'd be right at home in an animator's studio, though background detail is a bit overdone and potentially distracting in a book with such a well-controlled text. A strong new series for brand-new readers. (Early reader. 4-6)

    Great Read!

    I shared this with my nephew (age 6) and he loved it. He even laughed out loud at some of the word play. Glad that HPC is adding more titles to their I Can Read books.

    It's okay.

    I love the artwork. The dinosaurs are very cute and the topic is a good topic, but the execution was a little lacking. It will do for my toddler boy who loves dinosaurs.

    Great Fun Reading!

    This very cute story was lots of fun recording my 2nd grader reading it and then listening again and again. I love that we can record multiple readings to enjoy & learn. My goal was to improve his speed and I believe it really helped! Loved it!

    Recommend

    I bought this book for my 2 year olds and they loved it. The simple words and phrases are easy for them to understand. I could see where it might be a little repeatative for older children but for the age group I bought it for it's wonderful. Plus one of my twins loves dinosaurs and the other baseball so it was a win win.

    Kids love it!

    This Digger the Dinosaur book drives me crazy. I want to send him to the doctor to get his ears checked. But my 2 year old twins love it. The laugh everytime Digger gets something wrong. They ask for it at bed time every night. I recommend it for the little ones.
