Basic Plot: Digger is too focused on playing to listen to his mom when she wants him to clean up.

Overall, not bad for a free Nook download. The art was polished and effective. The story and writing were extremely simplistic, but it is designed for young children just getting used to the idea of reading, so it's a good fit. The story uses some puns, too, as the young dinosaur mishears his mother and friend's instructions, which is good for beginning readers to get a sense of the sound of words as...more

"Digger the Dinosaur," by Rebecca Kai Dotlich, is a very short cutely illustrated story about a little dinosaur who needs to tidy his room before he can go out to play with his friends.

"Digger the Dinosaur" is easy to read aloud, features a nice cadence and some fun rhymes, and holds up well to re-reads. The illustrations are unique and pleasant and work very well with the story. In the story, Digger is so focused on going out to play that he has difficulty listening to what he's told to do, and...more
This story is about a little dinosaur who wants to go outside and play, but he needs to clean up his room first. He doesn't hear the directions correctly and is constantly putting the wrong items away like putting the cats in the closet instead of his hats. I love the use of rhyming words, and cute illustrations. It's fun for kids to try and figure out what Digger will mess up next.

Over all amazing book! I didn't know who I really was until I read this book. This book much inspiration I'm surprised you would be able to harness it in so few of pages. After reading this book it gave me the initiative to complete my life goals. I would encourage anyone human with a heart to read this book. If you want to find out what you are meant for in this world I would highly recommend that you read Digger the Dinosaur. Throughout my entire lifetime I've been looking for the one special...more
I saw this book in ibooks and I thought it will be interesting to read since I'm fond of children's books. Anyway,reading the title of the book you'll expect the story to have a digging scene or tunnel scene and the like but, nothing like that happened. Aside from the title I don't have any problem with this book I only thought that I prefer the other installments of the "I can read" series.
This is the story of a young dinosaur who doesn't listen very well. He hears words that rhyme with the words that his mother and friend say to him instead of the words they actually say! A great early reader book because it shows kids that it's ok to make mistakes and that you can fix things when mistakes happen.
I had to read this book to Cooper. It was kind of annoying how they kept making mistakes then the mom coming in to fix it! Exaple....... (put the HATS away)then they put the CATS away instead. But Cooper enjoyed it and thats what matters!:)
Another cute book that I read to my nephew. Ho adored it...
Got this with my nook, cute for kids.
Not bad for a free nook book!
