A Perfect Day For Digging

In the spring when trees unfreeze and grass grows green and pansies say, “Please plant me!” Nell and her dog, Rusty, can’t wait to dig in dirt just right for digging. But Norman, their neighbor, says “Ewww!” to digging and dirt.Until Nell and Rusty begin to dig up unexpected treasures: a pretty striped marble, the mini stegosaurus that Nell lost last summer, and most intriguing of all—part of a tiny china doll. Who played with it? Is there more? Norman wonders.Now, even Norman can’t resist. He rolls up his sleeves, picks up the extra trowel, and starts to dig in his own careful way—in the process discovering all the simple joys of digging, dirt, and the fun of trying something new. Words and pictures brimming with humor and exuberance capture one of the true rites of spring: Hooray for dirty digging!

My son is 6 and in 1st grade. They have been working on learning to read this year and he LOVES reading! I read through this book before I showed it to him, I knew he'd like it. I was right, he likes it more than I expected, even! I gave it to him when he came home from school on the first day of Spring Break. He was excited about it but he wanted to go out and play for a little while. I told him we would read it that night before he went to bed and out he went!When bedtime came he asked about the book. We started to read it and he immediately told me how pretty he thought the pictures were! The illustrations really are very nice, I agree with him! We got further into the book and he asked about why Norman doesn't like to dig but Nell does! I reminded him of his friend Naleah who loves to dig, and that I used to dig in the dirt with my 3 sisters when we were little, too. I told him, not all boys like to dig and lots of girls DO!He laughed at the dog digging and asked if our dog, Bear, was allowed to dig. I told him no, Bear doesn't dig because he's so big that his holes would be too big! He got over that quickly! He got more excited as Nell found things buried under the dirt and Norman got curious and joined in.He was very excited for Spring to actually get here so he could go out with his friends and dig. He's been stuck in the house since late October when the snow began and temperatures went below zero for months on end! Poor kid, he was all excited after reading this book yet it still hadn't stopped snowing! When he grows up he can talk about how he was a kid when we got the most snow in recorded history and how he had to spend too many months inside, but at least he had a few good books to read!
