   Little One LOVES it!
It's one of our little ones' favourite books. Great pick if you like LO construction equipment.
   For the Excavator-Obsessed
In fact, my 2.5 year old cannot get enough of them! It's a book about all the common vehicles, and has such a catchy ring to it. We've read it almost a month and he can't stop repeating most of the book.
   Kiddo loves this
We originally got a copy through the Dolly Parton Imagination Library, but little brother got hold of it and ripped it up. Only thing I don't like is that ever since reading the book, he now says "bam bam bam" and wants to knock things over, but he's old enough that I can redirect his "baming" to certain things. Hahha, he's so cute, when he reaches for things, he says he's the little excavator. He has this book memorized.
   Mediocre Baby Book
I'm sure my excavator-loving 1.5 year old will love it, but as an early childhood teacher reading this I'm thoroughly underwhelmed and want my money back. Overall, I'm not great, and pretty disappointing. He is a heavy onomatopoeia and rhyming writer. Good for a baby and in that regard should have been a board book, he said. But then again, looking back at the Llama books, they weren't great either, especially from an attachment standpoint. There is no guarantee that Melville's book will sell, but there is clout for the author.
   Huge hit with 2 yo boy
Two-year-old boy is so excited about it that after one day, he had memorized several lines and wanted to take it in the bath. The onomatopoeias and the shifting of perspective are smart touches that help distinguish it from the many toddler truck books.
   Love this book!
My daughter is 2 and LOVES construction vehicles, and absolutely loved this book. It has great illustrations and an entertaining story line that holds his attention for the whole book, Morgenthau said. It's great to be back home, said Blair.
   The book responsible for helping my autistic 2 year old son to speak his first words!
It has been my 3 year old's favorite book since he got it from Dolly Parton's Imagination Library. He also said he bought the book when he wore his other one out. It is the first book he ever memorized, though he just calls it Tall, and he doesn't enjoy many yet!
   Perfect for little truck lovers
This book is by far the best. It easily engages my active 3 yr old who loves excavators and other big rigs, Mr. Dhaliwal said. He has told me to read this book multiple times. I would highly recommend this product to anyone. Simple rhymes make it easy for our 5 year old to read along with me.
   Fun, easy to read book for kids who love trucks
My 18 month old trucks and I were looking for a book that was a bit longer than a typical board book and had easy to remember words, rhymes and actions, he said. The one with the monkey on his back. We read this book at least two times a day and he is starting to understand the rhyming like “fall, fall, fall” or “go, go, go,” said Dr. Goin.
   Validating for little diggers :)
It's not one of my favorites of Anna Dewdney's books, but my construction-crazy toddler absolutely loves it. It's just that I got tired of checking it out from the library and just bought us a copy. I have decided that the appeal-apart from the trucks-is the moral, that there are things for little diggers to do now, and that they aren't too small for everything, as it must sometimes feel. So that's a good thing for our toddler to hear, and I'm glad we got him a copy," Mrs Clinton said.
