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.
