    4. Very good book used in the nursery on SEB. It has repetative words, and goes into the use of the transport vehicles as to what they do and how. Best of all the end result of the vehicles, diggers, truck, road rollers etc all work together to make the new adventure playground,the children really liked this and talked about what they could see if the playgroud. Which also helps with CLL. Read the book on day too and we used BIG ARM movements to describe what which vehicles can do ie Digger DIg DIG [...]

    5. In this board book various machines show what they can do to clean up a mess and turn it into something useful. Each of the six colorful machines has it's own spread with white background and simple illustrations stating the machine's name along with one word (repeated three times)to describe it's job. Motions can easily be created for each of the machine jobs. The story also summarizes what each machine did so a retelling at this point, perhaps with a felt board, or with the child's own toys, w [...]

    6. Each piece of construction equipment has a job to do in order to help clean up the mess. The digger can dig, dig, dig and the mixer can mix, mix, mix. This is a very colorful picture book with lots of bright colors that really grab your attention. The simple pages really leave the story and jobs up to the individual pieces of construction equipment so they can really shine. The repetition on how each piece of equipment works is great for kids and then shows how they use those skills to work.

    7. My 2 year old absolutely loves this book!! We checked it out probably four times from the library. It's a short easy read with with construction trucks fixing a mess to make a playground. You can't get much better than that for a little boy. He really enjoyed the illustrations; all the vehicles are different colors and he had fun finding all the tires and birds and such. It's repetitive so after a while he was practically reading with me.

    8. I love this book for beginning readers! although the full sentences are too hard, the small repetitive words in large print will help kids to memorize the words and see how they are used. I know my nephew will love this. because of the repetition, it seems likely that he will "read" this book to his younger sisters and other family members.

    9. I loved this book. It's a great read for little ones, especially those who love trucks (as many young ones do). I was so sad to learn, however, that this book is out of print, and the only copy in my library system is all torn up and ready to go to the book graveyard.

    10. Daddy got this for Lydia and she loved it from the moment we read it. Now whenever we pass a construction zone, she points out "dig dig" for the trucks. It's a cute story about creating something beautiful out of something messy.

    11. My truck-loving toddler loves this book, and so does his daddy. They've even added hand movements to go along with each truck, and inevitably I am the one to get "pushed, pushed, pushed" when the bulldozer is mentioned. The simple, colorful artwork is pretty fun too.

    12. Nice bright colours in an Eric Carle style are paired with simple large text. The different machines are in different colours although they all have google eyes. I like the repetition in extra large text on each page. I can see little ones joining in on this part.

    13. I saw a webinar that suggested using scarves or other props so children can act out the story as it's read.

    14. Describes how various earthmoving trucks clean up a dump and make a playground, discussing what such machines as diggers, mixers, bulldozers, and cranes can do.

    15. This was awesome in toddler storytime. The kiddos helped with all the actions-- libraryasincubatorproject. Check this post for how to move.

    16. I was not very excited by this book, and neither was mom. But she thinks I will like it more when I'm older, because I can repeat "tip tip tip" over and over. We'll see.

    17. Great kids book for my son. Follow these machines as they use action words to build a surprise at the end of the book. Both my young kids enjoyed this one.

    18. A simple introduction to construction trucks with sound effects included. You could easily incorporate movements too.

    19. This is a bright, colourful board book with many trucks and diggers fixing a mess and making something. Simple and fun.

    20. Lots of great action words that young readers can imitate. The repeated words mean kids can easily pick up on the pattern and jump in themselves. I also like how each truck is a different color - makes for a good question to ask during storytimes! The mixed-media illustrations and broad brush strokes are nicely textured, helping to evoke the dirt and mud of the construction site. The copy I have is a board book so the pages are a little small, but the white backgrounds help make the illustration [...]

    21. ‘Tip Tip, Dig Dig’ is a display of colourful construction vehicles completing their routinely works. What started out as a big mess at the start becomes a beautiful playground at the end of the story. Emma Garcia has fantastically created a perfect book for children in early years, as each page is illustrated with bold colours and pictures. The book highlights different machinery in each page and the jobs they do. With the use of repetition and rhyming words, children can easily participate [...]

    22. What I love most about this book are the illustrations & the ease I have with associating craft ideas with the book. We've been making replicas of the construction equipment using different shapes, colours & textures. There's soo any wonderful educational ideas that a parent can use with this book. For example, yesterday, my 2 year old made a crane using the shapes of several rectangles, a square, a triangle & several circles. This taught her about shapes. We used 3 different colours [...]

    23. Each piece of construction equipment has a job to do in order to help clean up the mess. The digger can dig, dig, dig and the mixer can mix, mix, mix. This is a very colorful picture book with lots of bright colors that really grab your attention.
