A perfect book for little digger-lovers!

Trucks and tractors, fire engines and helicopters—they all like to work hard. But after a long, happy day of beep-beeping and vroom-vrooming, even the busiest engines need to rest. This bright, bouncy, noise-filled book brings together all the vehicles that children adore.

      Comments about Dig Dig Digging:

      This book was great for my 2 year old who absolutely loves any sort of truck and diggers. And due to the repetitive nature of the book he now reads along with me which is fantastic for helping develop his speech.

          My 2.5yr old son LOVES this book to the point I am reading it a minimum of 3 times a day! It has the ability to be sung too which is cool (if you can pick up the tune which isn't very hard).
          It is slightly american (as most books are) but nothing that really bothers me.

              My 18 month old little boy loves this book, and I think it will be one which lasts as he grows older. Lots to read and talk about

                This is a good book. Great subject matter for young children. This is an informative book and great for teaching children about different machines. The only draw back is the use of American english and terminology.

                  My 18mo boy loves this book, especially now that he's recognising the garbage trucks, cranes, diggers etc when we go outside. The rhymes and action words capture his attention and really adds to his vocabulary.

                    This is the most read book I have in my Day Care. It is read at least 3-4 times every day and the children love to read it themselves. I have had it in my library since about 2000 so it is well loved.

                        Fantastic book for toddlers (especially those interested in diggers, large machines etc!). Very catchy rhythmic words and colourful pictures. My 2yo son requests this every day.
