Dig Dig Digging by Margaret Mayo, illustrated by Alex Ayliffe - ESSENTIAL

Mayo, Margaret.  Dig Dig Digging, illustrated by Alex Ayliffe.   Henry Holt, 2006.  $6.99.  BOARD BOOK.
Author, Margaret Mayo, cleverly uses word repetition to explain the different jobs of trucks, tractors, diggers, and bulldozers.  For example, “Tractors are good at pull pull pulling.”  The illustrations are colorful and detailed; but what really makes this board book shine is the mini-tabs around the top and the side of the book.  Little fingers love to use tabs.  And little eyes love bright colors and different text sizes.
