"My son turned five about two weeks ago. He got a "Big Dig" from my husband's parents. He sits on the seat and he can dig holes in the sandbox with the big, construction-like shovel. All that is great, except he doesn't have a sandbox. I set him to work on the weeds in the garden -- with rather disastrous results.
A few days after his birthday, my son received this book from a friend of mine. He recognized the "Big Dig" right away, and immediately told me a story about a shovel and the moon and the stars. The story is great. The text is good, especially since it is a debut book -- the rhyming scheme goes off occasionally, but not irretrievably. The illustrations, however, are phenomenal.
The illustrations have a wonderful retro feel; they are soft, but bright and friendly, and with a healthy dose of humor. In all, my favorite kind of illustrations."
"One of the things that the reader will notice when they start reading this book is the rhymes. It’s easy to read and sounds like a lullaby for a bedtime story. This book also gives readers a different perspective of the machines/ equipment’s we use to conduct work such as fixing or developing freeways, roads, bridges, or buildings. Each equipment has the own way of working. Because of the setting is taken place at night, the colors are mostly dark.This picture book celebrates the work that goes on at a construction site. As the day winds down, the trucks complete their final tasks. The crane truck lifts and settles one more beam. The cement mixer pours out its last load. The story follows those big trucks and others such as dump trucks, bulldozers, and excavators all fascinating to young children as they shut down for the day, satisfied with a job well-done. The oil pastel illustrations create a peaceful setting as night approaches that compares with the motion-filled illustrations that show the trucks hard at work during the day. It's no wonder these hard working vehicles need a rest. I loved the cover that shows the excavator gently cradling the moon. "
