Digger Does It All (Not Really!)

Illustrated by Patrick Corrigan

From bestselling author and editor Brooke Vitale and renowned illustrator Pat Corrigan (Toe Truck Joe), this the story of a boastful construction vehicle who thinks he can do it all.

“Here I am. Make way, make way!
Digger’s here to save the day!

“No job’s too big, no job’s too small,
for the best construction truck of all.”


Children of all ages will love the story of Digger, the construction vehicle who thinks he can lift like a crane, carry like a forklift, dump like a dump truck, and push like a bulldozer. But, when he tries to do everyone else’s jobs, he creates a crazy chaotic construction site! The simple rhyming text tells a silly story, while gently introducing the concept of cooperation, as well as the message that the best way to show up in the world is as yourself!
