Move that truck!
Here is a preview of summer fun at the library!
Dig Into Summer Reading kicks off with Tip Tip Dig Dig. This very colorful book by Emma Garcia has me digging in the dirt with some heavy duty trucks.
Just check 'em out!
If you are not familiar with this book...let me introduce you. The story opens with a two page illustration of a terrible mess - a dump of a mess - what can we do with it? Tell me! What do you see? What do you think? What shall we do? Truck drama, who knew?
Well just maybe we can get a digger and DIG DIG DIG! Can you do that with me? What does digging look like? Should we stand up? And what do we say? Let me hear you say it! LOUDER! DIG DIG DIG!
Do you like trucks? Well, here comes another one! A Mixer! Let's Mix Mix Mix!! Move your body like a mixer!
Would you like to see the rest of the trucks
in this book?
Do you know their names?
Alright, Big Gigantic TRUCKS!
Get Digging! Get Rollin' and Move on out!
You've got a job to do!
Okay - there's more...grab a scarf, the same color as your favorite truck in the book and we'll read it again...and you get to make the sound of your truck and move your scarf all around!! You get to be a GIGANTIC LOUD TRUCK! A truck cacophony to drive us a bit crazy! Can YOU dig it? Yes you can!
And let's add a video to the mix...the Driving My Tractor video, brought to YouTube by Barefoot Books and Steve's Songs. (Book by Jan Dobbins and David Sim) It's a wonderful ride through a color-filled farm.
Anyway you look at it...color is coming...monster trucks, dancing scarves, adventure play land or a happy farm. This week is full of color. And it is the inspiration to roll us right into our (not quite completely planned but still coming at you) Dig Into Summer Reading at the library!!!
P.S. (Piper Script): We are thinking BIG!
