The Little Yellow Digger Gift Edition product reviews

Proud to promote NZ productsWhen digging out a drain, the little yellow digger gets stuck in the mud. So they bring in a bigger digger . . .

Betty Gilderdale - author, critic and a founder member of the New Zealand Children's Literature Association - wrote The Little Yellow Digger after a similar situation occurred at her daughter's home. The illustrator of this book, husband Alan Gilderdale, was an art lecturer, artist, and printmaker. This favourite New Zealand picture book has become a classic.

An enduring favourite, the Little Yellow Digger regularly appears in the Top 10 bestseller list more than 20 years after original publication was released. This special gift edition version of this book is larger in size and with a hardcover.

I think anyone who has had contact with a preschooler in the last 24 years would be familiar with this story, as a preschool teacher with a love of reading, I can confidently recite the whole story with out looking at the pages. New Zealand children love the little yellow digger, and this version has a big star stating A New Zealand Favourite Picture Book which is great for those who perhaps haven't been in touch with preschoolers, it's easy to identify as a classic kiwi favourite.

Personally I have never found a copy of the book large enough to read to a group of children, this version is much bigger than a standard copy, which is fantastic, and makes reading to a small group of children easy, everyone can clearly see the little yellow digger. This gift version also has an embossed cover, with a digger track for the children to feel, (and for the preschoolers that I have shared this with, once they have felt the digger track once, every time the read the story they want to feel the track again, it adds another dimension to the already rich and descriptive language) and good quality pages that will endure being read, and examined again and again.

I have already purchased this gift version of the little yellow digger, for a friend (who's also a teacher) who's having a baby, I know that this gift will offer many years of enjoyment for her and her child, and may even end up getting passed on to the next generation in their family. I think the price is very resonable, and if you are considering buying a book as a gift this is a perfect choice for both boys and girls.

Product reviews for listing 7012: DC Comics - Secret Hero Society: Study Hall of Justice -  Author: Dustin Nguyen

Product image for DC Comics - Secret Hero Society: Study Hall of JusticeYoung Bruce Wayne is the new kid at Ducard Academy, a prep school for gifted high school students. Bruce finds out pretty quickly that he doesn't fit in: the faculty seems to not just encourage villainous behaviour from its students, but reward it. Bruce makes friends with two other outsiders, farm boy Clark Kent and the regal Diana Prince.

They soon discover that not only are the kids here special, they all seem super. The ... more...
