    1. 3* art3* story/rhymeI ruined the story for Squirt. I asked him to find the little black cat on each page, and now he pays no attention to the words whatsoever but triumphantly points to the creature, exclaiming "You lose!"


    2. This is a delight! I had grabbed this first, so will have to go back and read Dig, dogs dig ASAP. It tells how a group of dogs tear down a building so as to build a new building, a high rise. Bright cheerful illustrations and a happy group of dogs having fun while working. Hand this to almost any truck obsessed kid.I could have used this last weekd don't forget to look for the cat on every page for more fun! Unfortunately the jacket will cover up the cat on the end pages but other than that, thi [...]




    3. Dig, Dogs, Dig: A Construction Tail is awesome and this follow up with Build, Dogs, Build: A Tall Tail is just as grand. Very educational with tons of construction terminology as well as packed with fun rhymes and great rhythm. The illustrations provide a lot to look at and entertainment too. I'm sure plenty of fun is at hand with this picture book. I look forward to more Dogs books from James Horvath. I received this product free for the purpose of reviewing it. I received no other compensation [...]


    4. My two favorite authors when I was just learning how to read were Richard Scarry and Dr. Seuss. Well, if ever there was the book that was the perfect blend of the the two, it would have to be this book! It tells the tale of head foreman Duke and his team of tail-waggin' friends as they demolish an old building and construct a new one. The illustrations are adorable, cheery and brightly colored. The story is told in classic rhyming style and is both in-depth and humorous. Children of all ages wil [...]


    5. Why aren't there more girls in construction books? And why is the only 1 girl dog in this one pink? Okay, I'll admit, I'm a girly girl. I like sparkles and glitter and all that. But I also like construction sites and using a lathe (yeah, a lathe, I know how to use one) and welding. Immediately, with our picture books, we're already showing girls that this isn't the place for them. And that makes me sad. I love the rhyming in this book, frankly, I couldn't rhyme my way out of a paper bag. And I r [...]


    6. In this colorful picture book, a group of construction worker dogs builds a new skyscraper. Their canine foreman oversees it all, from dismantling the old building to creating a new one, to celebrating at the end of a job well done and moving on to the next assignment.Build, Dogs, Build would be very popular with kids who love to learn about construction, and the eye-catching illustrations, energetic dogs, and generous details about creating buildings just add to the fun. Although the rhyming te [...]


    7. One of my all time favorite books is Go, Dog, Go! by PD Eastman. I studied those pictures for hours, counted the dogs on each page and counted how many of each color were on each page. It was great fun, culminating in that fabulous dog party in the tree. Is Build, Dogs, Build a purposeful homage to Go, Dog, Go? It sure captures the joie de vivre of those original dogs. And as a bonus, it ends with a dog partyis time at the penthouse pool terrace.I LOVE finding good rhyming read-alouds that appea [...]


    8. Love this author. The illustrations are delightful with a sense of humor and add more to the story. Our toddler loves anything to do with construction and building and Dig Dogs Dig is one of his favorite books and so he was delighted when he saw his friends in another story. I think he still likes the Dig Dogs Dig book best, but he chooses this one nealy as often. We are looking forward to his third book.


    9. Another winner to go with Dig, Dogs, Dig; this time the construction dog crew builds a skyscraper. Charming cast, lots of happy action, and a good swing to it. My five year old loves this one too.Note to parents: in this one, the pink dog, Roxy, is more active and is shown as a welder, etc. Again, it's unclear whether Roxy is a girl dog or boy dog, but he/she may be a role-model for pink-wearing-constructionistas/os.


    10. Great, fun book. A lot of Colorful illustrations and activity. You'll fall in love with Duke and the crew instantly. This is actually the 2nd book. If you missed it, you've got to get the 1st book called Dig Dogs Dig. It may be a book about construction, but it's not just for boys, the girls will love it too.There is a female dog "Roxy" on Duke's crew. You won't be disappointed.


    11. 3.5 A bunch of dogs first demolish and then construct a building. My preschoolers enjoyed saying "wreck dogs wreck" and "fetch dogs fetch" etc with me. I skipped a few pages because it was getting a bit long for them/me. I though it was dumb how the girl dog is pink colored. Used as part of construction/tool storytime.


    12. This is such a great introduction to the WHOLE process of construction. From the demolition to the pipes and drains, to laying the floor and doing the steel girders etc. all the way to the finishing work. and it RHYMES the whole time. I'm going to have to find a chance to read this book at storytime. There are humorous bits in the illustrations that the kids will love.


    13. I won a copy of this book from a Firstreads Giveaway.I absolutely loved this children's book! I entered the giveaway to give the book to my great-grandson. When I won, Mr. Horvath was kind enough to inscribe the book to him personally. I know it will become a cherished favorite. I look forward to more books in the series.


    14. This book is one of my son's favorites! He absolutely loved Dig, Dogs, Dig so I had to get him this book! It's a perfect read for little boys. There is construction equipment and who doesn't love dogs!? The dogs also have a cat named Jinx which you can look for on every page. My little guy loves looking for him! The dogs are silly and the pictures are cute. Overall a great children's book!


    15. You can never have too many picture books about construction. In this one, dogs are building a skyscraper. It seems like a lot of picture books about construction focus on roadwork or the building of a park, so it's nice to see a change of pace. The rhyming text is a bit a clunky at times, but overall, this is great book for kids passionate about construction.


    16. Great use of illustrations - there is a lot going on on almost every page - lots for kids to keep themselves busy with. Not a good bedtime story - the action is to be continued. Uses a variety of above average vocabulary which is great.








    17. Fun rhyming books with dogs working, although the timeline is a little vague for me and how you can build a whole building in "one" day takes me out of the story.




    18. Excellent book. Kids can learn many construction terms, and the illustrations are lively and fun. Received this book as a giveaway, and I highly recommend it!


    19. This is a good book for children who like dogs and/or construction. It is written in a rhyming style that makes it accessible to ECE and early elementary level readers.
