Description

Sebastien Braun follows up Toot and Pop! with Digger and Tom!, another brightly colored picture book featuring vehicles preschool kids love.
 
Digger and Tom! is set at a construction site. Little Digger is eager to help with the work, but all the other construction vehicles are bigger and make a lot more noise. The dump truck, steam roller, steam shovel, bulldozer, crane, cement mixer, and excavator keep taking over his jobs.
 
Children will identify with Little Digger as he struggles to find his place on the construction crew and will cheer when Digger discovers there are some jobs he can do better than anyone!
 
Sebastien Braun’s charming illustrations show the loveable personalities of all the construction vehicles at the work site.



Praise For Digger and Tom!

This engaging picture book about trucks, teamwork, and a “try, try again” philosophy begins on the endpapers at a construction site. Illustrations feature bold black outlines and bright blocks of color that match well the playful text that ranges across the pages.
Booklist

PRAISE FOR TOOT AND POP!: “There is a high degree of charm in the baldness of this pint-sized parable. The pacing is pleasingly swift, and the mood is upbeat. And it is impossible not to be smitten by a book with such ingenuous opening words.”
Kirkus Reviews

“A simple, straightforward story with an uplifting message.”
— School Library Journal

“[Braun’s] cheery artwork and saturated preschool palette are hard to resist….[The] story should hold readers’ attention and maybe even inspire some bathtub re-enactments.”
