Book Review - The Dinosaur Digger by Alison Ritchie and Mike Byrne

The Dinosaur Digger is a book in the new picture book series Jack's Mega Machines. Over on Mini Bookworms I reviewed the first title in the series - The Rocket Racing Car - which my son loved, so we were really pleased to be sent another in the series to review. I love how the books take two seemingly separate things which both appeal to young children, in this case dinosaurs and diggers, and blend them together in a story.

Jack is a mechanic who needs to fix a digger, but when he takes it for a test drive he is transported into a land of dangerous dinosaurs, saving some baby dinosaurs from the fearsome T-Rex.

The illustrations in the book are fantastic, and best of all it comes with a fold out dinosaur digger which your child can use to play along as you read the story, and then use to re-enact the story later on.

I really enjoyed reading this book to Harry, I love how it goes into so much detail about the digger as Jack mends all the different parts, and the descriptive language really makes the story come alive.

We received the book to review, Amazon link is an affiliate link.
