Eyes are big and wide, hands are over ears because of the thundering loud noises, and the hustle and bustle of big powerful machinery is a spectacle to behold. Welcome everyone to the construction site frenzy. This is how the big boys and girls play once they have graduated from their mighty machine toys.

About the book...
This fun book with its adorable little main character will delight both girls and boys. Kids love the power and sounds of mighty machines and their activity. It's enthralling to watch them work digging holes, filling up huge dump trucks and hauling the big loads away. They enjoy watching the exciting process repeat over and over again. It never gets old or tiring.
Diggy is a busy little machine with loads of work to complete. He is constantly in motion completing his assignments. Kids will relish the whole vibe of Diggy working incessantly and the incredible busyness on the work site.
A beautiful component the author adds is that the text is offered in both English and Spanish. Wee kids, being little sponges, will absorb a new language as the story is read aloud to them often.
The message is very powerful in its simplicity and the active illustrations are sure to hold their interest to the very last page. I highly recommend this book.
