Editorial Reviews

Review

Raves for Little Excavator:

* "Pitch perfect...[Dewdney] has constructed a solid winner for one of her final books, with an appealing main character, vibrant illustrations with varying perspectives, and an action-packed, rhyming text with sound effects just begging to be read aloud with dramatic effect. An A+ for Little E and his creator."--Kirkus, starred review

From School Library Journal

PreS-K—Little E, a baby excavator, busily tries to help the big rigs as they work to build a park, but he is either too small for the task or in the way. It's only when the construction is nearly done that there's a job that none of the mighty machines can get to, and it's Little E's turn to shine. The cheerful, anthropomorphized machines are illustrated in Dewdney's signature, child-friendly style, and there is onomatopoeia galore as each truck is introduced and gets to work. Fans of Dewdney's "Llama Llama" books will find the rhythm of the text and the positive tone familiar. VERDICT A fun first purchase for all preschool collections.—Kelly Roth, Bartow County Public Library, Cartersville, GA --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
