Take a look inside

“Rhythmic prose and great use of sound words (Clatter! Sploosh! Thump!) combine to make Dinosaur Dig a delight to read aloud, whilst boasting big appeal for any kid who likes dinosaurs or diggers or a combination of both!”

“A perfect mix of dinosaurs and trucks, lots of movement and action in the illustrations, and fun rhythmic text … All children’s libraries should have this one, it’s a keeper!”

“This book is a pleasure for the eyes and a perfect read aloud for any small child up to age seven.”

“Ten industrious dinosaurs work hard to make a swimming pool together, using a variety of construction vehicles in this fun and original counting book full of loud noises … this book will also appeal to girls with its bright colours and humourous detail of dinosaurs squeezing into diggers, drinking cups of tea and having fun together.”

“Bright busy pictures full of detail will capture children’s attention as they enjoy this romp through a digging project.”

“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”
