The Little Yellow Digger ABC by Peter & Alan Gilderdale.

abc diggerThe Little Yellow Digger ABC by Peter & Alan Gilderdale. Pub. Scholastic, 2019.

The mantle of Betty Gilderdale’s classic Little yellow Digger has been picked up by the next generation in an entertaining and educational ABC picture book with lift-the-flaps.

Little yellow Digger who looks quite grown up now is involved in lots of digging projects including digging a water hole for some hippos, saving a stranded whale on the beach, digging up some dinosaur bones among other things. He is a very helpful digger.

Rhyming text helps tell the story and reveal the letters of the alphabet in amazingly alphabetical order getting in such words as Unicorn and Xylophone. Each letter is in both capital and lower case letters and hidden under a flap for children to lift up.

The illustrations are colourful with lots of animals and digging work going on. Ideal for juniors as a read-a-loud and individual reading.
