Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

Delightful #Children’sBook – Dig It, Digby! by Jodie Parachini, illustrated by John Joven

My Review:

A brilliant, fun read starring dancing digger, Digby
Who got bored doing the same thing - it's monotony!
He decides to make his work so much more fun
Dancing away as he still gets things done.

The other vehicles think his moves look great
And decide to join in to celebrate.
What happens when the foreman spots the furore?
Will he ban them from dancing any more? 

A lovely story, told in rhyme, too
Always a winner for me, that's oh so true!
The illustrations are great, colourful and bright
Helping this story fill children's hearts with delight.

I really enjoyed sharing this fabulous book
And highly recommend you also give it a look.
For my complementary copy, I say thank you,
A lovely book to share and this is my honest review. 


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.
