Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
A colorful, captivating, and well-illustrated flap book, Michael Rex piques the curiosity of preschoolers with his question and answer format focused on digging. Rex skillfully highlights various diggers and what his subjects are digging for. The diversity of diggers include a dog, an ant, a miner, a gopher, construction crew, a forest ranger, a scientist, and a child. As an interactive book in which children can guess what's under the flap, the book truly engages while expanding the concept of digging. The pictures bring a wonderful visual and provide a great opportunity to expand vocabulary in a hands-on manner. Rex nicely concludes the digging theme with a familiar digger, a little boy on the playground, with whom any child can relate. 1999, HarperFestival, Ages 2 to 5, $6.95. Reviewer: Melinda Tierney
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-Two interactive, imagination-stretching books. Children can fold page-size flaps up to find out about the process of construction in Who Builds? and down to take a look below ground in Who Digs? Each page asks a simple question; the facing illustration contains an animal or human. When the page is folded out, there is an explanation of why this character builds or digs. For example, "Who digs in the woods? The forest ranger digs to plant a tree." The simple, bright cartoons on sturdy paper create a child-friendly appearance. There is plenty of white space around the words and the sentences are easy enough for beginning readers. Each book ends with an unanswered question-"Who builds with boxes?" or "Who digs in the playground?"-encouraging readers to chime in. Budding architects and young construction fans will be thrilled with these books; preschool classes may find them useful for comparing animal and human activities.-Angela J. Reynolds, West Slope Community Library, Portland, OR Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Who Digs? (16 pp.; Apr. 30; 0-694-01254.8): Readers explore the different people and animals that make a vocation of digging. Dog, ant, miner, gopher, construction worker, forest ranger, and scientist—all purposefully burrow. A simple question on who digs appears opposite a page that folds down to reveal the answer in text and art. The sturdy pages are well-suited to preschoolers, while beginning readers may find this a good book to tackle, with its repetitive structure, large print, and simple responses. (Picture book. 6-8)
