Dig It, Digby by Jodie Parachini - Book Tour & Review

Dig It, Digby!

Although Digby enjoys building cities with his fellow trucks, he also loves to twirl and groove. Being true to both aspects of his personality will really shake things up at the construction site. The foreman may be gruff and scary, but dancing trucks can really get the job done!

 DIG IT, DIGBY! targets all fans of truck/construction books, yet also pushes the boundaries of the typical ‘boy’ book genre. By incorporating dance, it challenges gender roles using nonhuman characters that all children can relate to. Told in joyous rhyme, DIG IT, DIGBY! is 360 words and has the lyricism of Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site and the stereotype-breaking ethos of Giraffes Can’t Dance.

My Review
Dig It, Digby! is an adorable children's book about construction vehicles. It has a great little rhyming scheme and lovely illustrations, and it's just an overall fun book for young readers. 
The story is about Digby. Digby is a truck who helps build cities, but he also loves to dance. And when the other trucks start singing and dancing along with him, the construction site becomes much more fun. The foreman, though, may seem a bit scary, like he might put a stop to the enjoyment of the trucks, but when he sees they're getting the job done, he lets them have their fun. 
This is such a delightful book for readers all of ages, and while it seems like it's more of a "boy" book, little girls can definitely read it too. Who says construction vehicles/trucks are just for boys? Who says dance is just for girls? This books combines both, and it will appeal to everyone. 
It's easy to read, with fun illustrations to bring it all to life. Kids will enjoy reading it again and again.
5 stars!
