Dig Dig Digging by Margaret Mayo and Alex Ayliffe

Age Range: 1 to 4

If you are looking for appealing, non fiction picture books for the littlest people ‘Dig Dig Digging’ is one of our favourites. My daughter absolutely adored this book when she was two and fascinated with vehicles but the repetitive text also makes it a great book for her now as a beginner reader. The text is rhythmic and easy to read which makes it perfect for children to join in and Alex Ayliffe’s pictures are bold, colourful and as delightfully busy as the text! This would also be a good book to read to non native English speakers.

Vehicles in the book include Diggers, Fire Engines, Tractors, Rubbish Trucks, Cranes, Rescue Helicopters and Bulldozers. If you want Emergency vehicles there is another book!

There are other books written and illustrated by the same team. My daughter wants to go into space so Zoom, Rocket, Zoom is on my wishlist for her. If you are a dinosaur fan you can Stomp, Dinosaur, Stomp!

  1. I was trying to be sneaky and read blogs while my son was playing and he caught me! He peeked over to see the screen and asked (pleaded, really) if we could read this book! So I’ll be checking it out soon! Thank you for the recommendation!
