Anna Dewdney’s Little Excavator {review and giveaway}

If you have young children or grandchildren, you have probably read the Llama Llama series Anna Dewdney, with her fun and creative illustrations.  Well now we can welcome something to the Anna Dewdney family that is so exciting, my kids won’t put the book down- Trucks!

We have been reading, for review, Anna’s newest book (Pre order your copy here) Little Excavator.  It has been a huge hit at our house; we love anything that rhymes, anything about trucks, and anything by our Anna Dewdney!  So when Little Excavator arrived in the mail box, all of my children were thrilled.

Anna Dewdney's Little Excavator

About the Book

The Big Rigs are working hard at the construction site when Little Excavator rolls up, eager to help. But Little Excavator isn’t big enough to CHUG CHUG CHUG! like the Dump Truck as it loads dirt to lug or MOUND MOUND MOUND! like the ‘Dozer as it pushes up the ground. Little Excavator wants to smooth out bumps and dig up dirt, but he is just too small. As Big Rigs around him WORK WORK WORK! they finally find a job that no other machine can do…except for Little Excavator!
There are exciting illustrations to go along with all the hard work happening on the job site, while “Little E” finds a job suited just right for him.  We get to learn about other types of construction machines, which is usually pretty fun for small children, especially those in my house. =)
About the Author
Anna Dewdney was a teacher, mother, and enthusiastic proponent of reading aloud to children. She continually honed her skills as an artist and writer and published her first Llama Llama book in 2005. Her passion for creating extended to home and garden and she lovingly restored an 18th century farmhouse in southern Vermont. She wrote, painted, gardened, and lived there with her partner, Reed, her two daughters, two wirehaired pointing griffons, and one bulldog. Anna passed away in 2016, but her spirit will live on in her books.
See a complete list of her titles here.  We have many of her books- from board books, to paper backs and hard back copies of our favorites. Little Excavator has definitely reached favorite status in our home.
