Review: Dig, Dogs, Dig, by James Horvath

Dig, Dogs, Dig: A Construction Tail
Who better than a pack of dogs to demonstrate digging? Construction books are always a hit with the younger set, and with our summer reading theme of "Dig Into Reading", I was especially happy to get this one in the mail.
Bouncy rhymes, four lines to a page, follow a group of dogs from their early morning wake-up call as they are dozing barracks-style. A little black cat follows them as they get their gear, eat their breakfast, and head off to the day's project. Each vehicle's purpose and appearance is described while happy working dogs seem to be everywhere at once. The completion of an entire park in one day is a bit of a stretch, but who wants to plod through months of permits and delays, anyway? (That dinosaur bone alone is going to cost you at least a year of governmental paperwork!)
This will be a great addition for both story times, and for those preschoolers who love to pore over pictures. Thanks to HarperCollins for the review copy!
