The Little Yellow Digger Goes To School product reviews

Proud to promote NZ productsWe crowded round the windows
to see what we could see,
as it began to make a hole
where the pool would be...

The famous Little Yellow Digger is coming to school to dig a swimming pool! The children are hugely excited. And when the digger bursts a water main, they get an unexpected field trip! This is a new edition of a much loved favourite in this best-selling series.

The rhyming text is by Betty Gilderdale and the accompanying illustrations are by Alan Gilderdale.

Who doesn't love the little yellow digger? So when the little yellow digger goes to school, of course it's a book you want to read. The little yellow digger goes to school by Betty and Alan Gilderdale is another book in the little digger series. This time he's off to school to dig a swimming pool. The kids love seeing the little yellow digger at school but disaster is not far away. As he hits a water main and the water to the school has to be turned off to fix the break and the children get an unexpected field trip to the beach. As the trusty little digger does, the water main is fixed and he continues on to construct the pool for the school. And of course, the children love their new pool.

Miss five loved this book. She loves diggers and they have just had a digger building a walkway at her school so she could relate to the children watching the digger. She liked that the kids got to go on a trip. She also loved that she was able to read the book herself. Myself, I like the story but don't feel it is as good as the original little yellow digger story. This book is another good addition to the little yellow digger series. The illustrations are the classic little yellow digger pictures we have also seen throughout the series.

$18.99 seems to be the average for a kids picture book and think if you like the other little digger books it's worth the money. I would probably purchase this book especially for a child who likes diggers and the other little yellow digger books.

Product reviews for listing 6651: Mouseford Academy 4: Dance Challenge -  Author: Thea Stilton

Product image for Mouseford Academy 4: Dance ChallengeThe Thea Sisters are thrilled about the new performing arts program being offered at Mouseford Academy. That is, until they meet the head of the department, the demanding and strict Professor Ratyshnikov. The mouselets will have to audition just to get into her class. On top of that, the famouse ballerina is an old friend of Headmaster de Mousus, but the two no longer get along. It is up to the Thea Sisters to find out why.
