Table of Contents

Dinosaur Dig! has everything that gets small boys excited - diggers, dinosaurs and dirt plus a bit of counting thrown in for good measure. Bursting with energy and noise and with a splashy, surprising ending, it's an absolute riot of a book.

Reviews

"A perfect picture book. Let me count the ways: Dinosaurs - tick; Diggers - tick; counting - tick; proper story - tick. And here's the bonus point: endpapers where the front one gives all the dinosaurs their proper names and the back one ALL THE DIGGERS!" Book Maven

PreS-Dale's counting book follows a formula designed to appeal to preschoolers: put dinosaurs in trucks and add a lot of noisy sound effects. The descriptive text uses numerous action words and is written in a marching pattern that invites children to clap along. Full-bleed watercolor and pencil spreads, each featuring a number from one to 10, show multihued dinos commanding rugged construction vehicles as they work together to dig a large hole, pump concrete, and paint it. The final spread reveals that they have built a giant swimming pool. With a stegosaurus driving a dump truck, a T. rex using a trowel, and a megalosaurus diving into the water, youngsters are likely to enjoy this picture book, but it is an additional purchase.-Martha Simpson, Stratford Library Association, CT (c) Copyright 2011.
