Dazzling Diggers (Amazing Machines) by Tony Mitton and Ant Parker

Diggers are noisy, strong, and big. Diggers can carry and push and dig. Diggers have shovels to scoop and lift, blades that bulldoze, shunt, and shift. Sloshing and squelching, and smashing and bashing, the construction machinery does its work - manned by a friendly animal gang - in this lively picture book.

This book describes what each of the working machines does and even more interesting they are driven by animals. It is bright and colorful with a lot of noisy sound that we could make outdoors using some of these diggers.

Aimed at small boys, this book is ok, but not overly informative or entertaining as it presents different kinds of digging equipment. The illustrations are ok, but not outstanding, with animal construction workers.

Children love rhyming and and it is a fun way to help children learn new words with their meanings. This book has great illustrations and explains to children different functions of construction machines. The glossary further helps children understand the different parts of machines and theur specific functions.

Extension
Provide children different models/toys of construction machines and let them identify the different parts. Then keep these toys in the science center and let them explore them du

My 4-year-old isn't really into diggers so he didn't like this book as much as he liked the one on cars. But it was still informative and fun to read.
