|Summary, etc.:|| "Little Excavator wants to help the big rigs transform a vacant lot into a neighborhood park, but he is too small to get the job done! That is, until he finds a job that is a perfect Little E-sized task"-- Provided by publisher.
- Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2017 May #1
This book sweetly transfers every small child's yearning to play with the big kids to a construction site, where Little Excavator tries his best to work among the big rigs. Winsomely kidlike "Little E" is eager to show he can dig and fill holes, but mostly he gets in the way of the huge trucks as he topples over or accidentally gets scooped up. The illustrations are cheerful and appealingly detailed, and Dewdney fills the site with hardworking favorites: a bulldozer, a loader, a dump truck, a backhoe, and a crane. But the sound effects are what truly stand out. Simple, rhyming text is punctuated with wonderful machinelike noises: "Pusha-pusha smusha-smusha SMASH SMASH SMASH!" The story has a satisfying arc, with Little E trying and failing, and then getting pushed aside and told he's too little, until there is a job that only he, being small, can do. Dewdney, the author of the Llama Llama series, passed away in 2016, but has left a marvelous legacy, including this latest charmer. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.
Anna Dewdney was a teacher, mother, and enthusiastic proponent of reading aloud to children. She continually honed her skills as an artist and writer and published her first Llama Llama book in 2005. Her passion for creating extended to home and garden and she lovingly restored an 18th century farmhouse in southern Vermont. She wrote, painted, gardened, and lived there with her partner, Reed, her two daughters, two wirehaired pointing griffons, and one bulldog. Anna passed away in 2016, but her spirit will live on in her books.
