Phoebe and Digger

by Tricia Springstubb

A girl and her construction vehicle.  It's the kind of combination that makes adults sing when trying to match children with books.  A twist on the ordinary.  Kids will relate to Phoebe's exasperation at waiting for her mom, and even feeling a bit bullied in the park.  Parents will relate to, well, a lot of things. Geared toward the background knowledge of preschoolers, this story is fun.  Even toddlers will enjoy the idea of a kid and digger.  Yesterday's crowd decided digger looked a bit like a dinosaur.
