BOY'S BOOKS: "Dean's Diggers"

"Dean's Diggers"

Dean's Diggers is a captivating, colorful board book for children. The book features look and find, lift the flaps, an alphabet page and a magnetic puzzle. Each page features many fun things to find: spiders, squirrels, hard hats, tape measures and gloves, just to name a few. Under the flaps you can read about many different items, including a screwdriver, Righty tighty, lefty loosey, turn it tight, not loosey goosey, and a flag, Flappety flap, roll and wave, red, white and blue, home of the brave. Also on each page you will find Dean enthusiastically telling about each digger and having a blast working on the site! Children will learn about excavators, graders, wheel loaders, and bull dozers and have a smashing good time doing it! At the end of the book, an alphabet page matches up with tools and everyday items: A - anvil, S - shovel, and X - x-ray (you might have to get one if you get hurt on the job!). The final page is a magnetic puzzle with Dean and his excavator buddy, Dusty. This puzzle will not fall out, the pieces stay in place, and it can even be put together on your refrigerator! Dean's Diggers is unlike any others out on the market, and with so many different things to read and do in the book, it will be any child's favorite book for years to come.

Another Great Book for Boys
If there is a boy in your home, family, or circle of friends, you'll want to know about Dean's Diggers by author/artist Eddie Ritz. I can tell you that if our son were growing up today, this is exactly the kind of book he would have reached for.
This unique book is colorful and informative as well as interactive. Each page contains pictures of heavy earthmoving equipment. There are flaps to open which highlight various items on each page.
The next to last page contains the alphabet and describes things like H for hammer, or W for wrench.
A favorite will surely be the puzzle on the last page. Its pieces are magnetic. They can either be stuck back onto their page, or applied to metal surfaces like your refrigerator or dishwasher.
Dean's Diggers is a sturdy book that will hold up to lots of use, and that's exactly what I believe this book will get.
In his promotion for the book, Eddie asks the question, "How do you get boys interested in Reading?" He answers that question with a wonderful book that you and your boys are sure to love. Find more information at
