Digger Dog

Oh, is this one a treat! Digger Dog by William Bee, illustrated by Cecilia Johansson, was recommended to my family by Miss Bonnie at The Storybook Shoppe.  My two year old son, Connor, cannot get enough of it. Every night he asks for "Digger Dog" and for "more Digger Dog!" It's simple, rhythmic, and interactive - it's absolutely perfect for his age. 

In this short picture book perfect for little ones who adore diggers, a dog goes in search of a bone. But the ground is always too hard and too deep - so he needs a bigger and stronger digger.  When he gets the biggest digger in the whole world, he finds the biggest bone in the whole world. Or is it? 

SPOILER ALERT! The last page folds out to unveil a very large dinosaur (fossil) hidden beneath what digger dog believes to be the biggest bone in the whole world. It's Connor's favorite part! He screams: "eeekk! Dinosaur!" We just love the pages that fold out. 

The illustrations are perfect for the text in this book. Digger Dog is so animated!  Children will love how predictable each page is, too. The concept is easy to understand and communicated very well. It really goes down in history as one of our favorites!
