Tip Tip Dig Dig

Tip Tip Dig Dig

Written and Illustrated by Emma Garcia

Published by Boxer Books

I've previously featured Toot Toot Beep Beep by Emma Garcia on this blog but we actually got Tip Tip Dig Dig first as part of a free book pack from our Health Visitor checkup. 

 Like Toot Toot Beep Beep, Tip Tip Dig Dig features a variety of vehicles going about their daily business. In Garcia's trademark "torn up bits of paper" art style, each page shows a scene of a piece of machinery getting down to the tricky business of creating something out of a pile of rubbish. From diggers to tippers through rollers and bulldozers and beyond, if your toddler's a fan of anything like Bob the Builder, or just loves a great book full of engaging pictures, then this is worth picking up. 

Charlotte's best bit: For some reason, the "crocodile" on the first page (that's actually a tree stump!)

Daddy's Favourite Bit: The sad teddy turning into a happy teddy at the end of the book. 

Rating: 4 out of 5

We just got this in our bookstart pack as well and I think its fantastic. Its a really engaging read and its been great fun getting the children to repeat the words after me (using shakers!) Personally, its one of the best books i've read in ages :)
