Dig Dig Digging by Margaret Mayo
“”Diggers are good at dig, dig, digging, ”
“scooping up the earth and lifting and tipping.”
“They make huge holes with their dig, dig, digging.”
“They can work all day.””
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.
The Construction Crew by Lynn Meltzer
The construction gang is tearing down an old building and laying the foundation for a new home. Workers use all kinds of trucks and tools to get the job done. And just in time for a family to move in. The alliterative text complete with shout-out language that young children will love is just right for preschoolers.
Grandpa’s Tractor by Michael Garland
Once, the farmer’s best friend was a red tractor. Back then, the pastures were filled with cows and the fields were full of corn. Today, the cows are gone and the rows of corn have been replaced with row after row of identical houses. Grandpa Joe brings his grandson Timmy back to the site of the family farm, where the old house and a ramshackle barn still stand. The visit evokes many memories for Grandpa Joe, which he shares with Timmy – in particular, the majesty of his own father’s shiny red tractor – now rusting in the forgotten fields. Lyrical text and evocative artwork come together to create a heartfelt homage to a bygone era.
