Is It Any Good?

DIG, DOGS, DIG is terrific fun to read aloud. The first time though, kids can try to guess what the dogs are making. On subsequent readings -- and there will be many -- they can pore over the charming details: the construction foreman relaying orders on a walkie-talkie, the clueless dog stuck in wet concrete, a worker soaked by a malfunctioning fountain, the feline friend tucked into every scene.
First-time author James Horvath's vibrant colors and fun, cartoony style make the pages crackle with energy.
The publisher's website has links to coloring pages, an activity sheet, and the book trailer.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
