My son Ben - 29 months reads this book every night and can now recite most of it from memory - if I could take only one book for him, it would be this one.
He & have read it so many times, i can even give you the text of the book here:
Diggers are noisy, strong and big, Diggers can carry, push & dig.
Diggers have shovels to scoop & lift, blades that buldoze shunt & shift.
Diggers have buckets to gouge out ground, breakers that smash & crash & pound.
Diggers move rubble and rocks & soil, so diggers need drinks of diesel oil.
Some have tires and some have tracks, some keep steady with legs called jacks.
Tyres & tracks grip hard as they travel, squish through mud and grind through gravel.
Diggers go scrunch & squelch & squash. This dirty digger needs a hosepipe wash.
Diggers can bash & crash & break, make things crumble, shiver & shake.
Diggers can heave & hoist & haul. Diggers help buildings tower up tall.
Diggers park neatly down on the site. Then digger drivers all go home. Goodnight.
