Digger Dog by William Bee, illustrated by Cecilia Johansson is another recent find that will fit in well with our summer reading topics. The brightly textured mixed media art catches the eye. I admire the little insects with their patterns and the quality of the dirt and ground. Digger Dog loves digging for bones, I'm sure you'll fall into puppy love with the ending, as I did. The text rhymes and the story brings bigger and bigger diggers to find the last bone. There are fold out pages to make the bigger diggers really impressive. I'll use this in Storytime with the preschoolers and with the primary school age crowd.
