Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Praise for Tip Tip Dig Dig picture book

“This book is a winner.” —School Library Journal
“Garcia's bright book is perfectly pitched to its target audience, who will really dig it.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Carolyn Hax
While they think they're reading about the construction equipment that pushes dirt around on the way to building a playground, they're really learning how to push verbs around on the way to building language.
—The Washington Post
School Library Journal

PreS-K You'll need multiple copies of this building saga. With collage and broad brushstrokes of paint, Garcia shows a landfill, and then gradually introduces six google-eyed construction vehicles that toil and ultimately create a playground on the site. Each function, from "Dig Dig Dig" to "Roll Roll Roll," is revisited twice, once with added detail, "the digger digs a hole," then via the question, "What did we do with all that mess?" Environmentally friendly, a sure shot for construction fans, a color concept book, and an avenue for beginning readers, this book is a winner.-Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA

Kirkus Reviews
A colorful tour through a variety of construction vehicles. The expanse of brown ground is a mess; "What can we do with it?" Out comes a series of trucks to do the job: digger, mixer, crane, dump truck, bulldozer, road roller. Each gets a two-page spread, with its job told in giant letters, in triplicate-"LIFT, LIFT, LIFT," for example. Garcia depicts these vehicles in a spectrum of bold colors, and each appears to be a mixed-media collage, the pieces so thickly painted as to look three-dimensional. All this work on the grim brown landscape turns it into a beautiful playground, with flowers, a tire swing, a sandbox and so forth. With its arresting design and simple repetition, Garcia's bright book is perfectly pitched to its target audience, who will really dig it. (Picture book. 2-5)

    Engaging and Educational

    My two year old son LOVES this book. I love reading it to him also because while the story is quite simple, he enjoys practicing his colors, his letters, and the different kinds of trucks. My four year old daughter has also liked this book because she can sound out the repetitive "Dig, Dig, Dig" and "Tip, Tip, Tip" and "Roll, Roll, Roll".
