A picture book for the very young that celebrates a child's excitement for construction vehicles ""Honk the horn! " "Flash the lights!" "Scoop the rocks!" "Push the mud!"" A little boy imagines driving a great big digger-scooping and pushing mud to make a playground for his baby brother. Children are fascinated with bulldozers, backhoes, payloaders-diggers of all shapes and sizes. In this playful picture book, simple alliterative language and bold, colorful images capture a child's love of building and creating.

A great book for children with a love of diggers and construction-type trucks. Easy to read and with lovely messages for siblings (especially brothers - the main character is an older brother approx 3-4 years old). My son adores this book so much. The illustrations are lovely and my son gets excited about the 'playground' spread every time. Highly recommended for children aged 18 months to 4 years.
A Book Sense "Children's 76 Winter 2003 - 2004" title "The joyful acrylic illustrations and the sparse, confident text will delight other digger-wannabes." --"Booklist " "Truck and machinery fans will dig this." --"Kirkus Reviews " "The book's most distinctive note, however, lies in having the narrator employ his construction dream world as a means of connecting with his sibling, rather than escaping from him." --"Publishers Weekly" "Another lively, sure-to-please winner." --"School Library Journal "
