Back Cover: Come on down to the construction site! Make some noise with eight exciting construction vehicles as they rumble, crunch, chug, and BOOM their way through this lively book!
First Spread: The excavator goes chumma, chumma, chumma, hufft, hufft, fallump.
About the Book: This board book contains the pictures of eight construction vehicles and the sounds each makes as it is used on a construction site—or in your house! The eight vehicles are the excavator goes . . . HUFFT-FALLUMP; forklift goes . . . WHIRRRFFFTT-BONK; jackhammer goes . . . KKAKKA-AKK; dump truck goes . . . PA-LUMP ; front loader goes . . . BRRUMM-SKOOOOOO; steamroller goes . . . CHUG-CHUG; bulldozer goes . . . RRRUMBLE-SCRUUMBLE; and the wrecking ball goes . . . BOOOOOOOOOM!
What I Thought: Diggers Go is a thick board book of an unusual size. It is longer than most books to accommodate the size of these construction vehicles. Little boys will go crazy for this book. When my nephew was three, he would have loved Diggers Go. Like other kids his age, and younger, he was car and truck crazy. Girls might also love this book, but it is really for boys.
When open, Diggers Go is two feet—2 FEET!—of colorful, noisy construction vehicles, busy doing their jobs. A mini-front loader is on the cover and a mini-excavator on the back. In between are those plus six more LARGE vehicles that young boys will really love reading and playing with. Diggers Go will ignite their imaginations and a love of reading. The pages are thick to withstand major construction. These tough-working, construction-site vehicles are on stand-by, waiting for the right little boy to help them bust, break, and build anything they can imagine. Along with Diggers Go, Trucks Go, and Trains Go are available for your transportation-loving child. Maybe Planes Go will be next? Just heard from author. Planes Go and Boats Go will be coming soon! .
