My little 3 year old is really getting in to books. He also really loves trucks, and trains, and cars, and tractors, pretty much type of vehicle. One of his favorite books is Dig Dig Digging. The authors of this book are Margaret Mayo and Ale Ayliffe.
Dig Dig Digging is a little board book. All of the pages are made of hard board. This is book meant for really little kids from about 2 to 4 years old, and is constructed more sturdily to put up with the abuse that kids of that age group can subject it to.
This book is the perfect book for my son, since it is all about vehicles. The book features diggers, tractors, fire engines, garbage trucks, cranes, transporters, dump trucks, road rollers, bulldozers, and trucks.
There are 2 pages dedicated to each vehicle. One page contains part of the picture, and the words, the other with the main part of the picture. There is a brief explanation of what all of the vehicles do. There are also repetitive words on each of the pages. For example the digger says that, It is good at dig, dig, digging. For the fire engine the book says that they are good at, Race, race racing and Swoosh, swoosh, swooshing. At the end of the explanation of each vehicle it says, They can work all day. At the end of the day all of the vehicles turn their engines off and rest all night.
The book is really cool the way it explains what each of these vehicles do. My son will now point out the car window when he sees a construction site and will start yelling out what each of the vehicles are, he has really learned to identify them really well by having this book read to him. He gets really exited when ever he sees a construction site.
The repetitive words like swoosh, swoosh, swooshing can also help in teaching a child to read on their own. Of course my son is not at that level yet, but having repetitive words like that can really help a child identify certain sounds, and letter combinations. The repetitiveness re-affirms the words.
This is a great little book for kids that love vehicles. They will learn a bit about each of these vehicles, and will enjoy the reading experience.
