Beginning readers will love this I Can Read adventure starring a doggy construction crew, gently adapted from James Horvath's popular picture book of the same title.

Top dog Duke and his crew of construction-worker dogs are hard at work building a new park. They need lots of cool equipment to help them dig, haul, push, and plow--like a backhoe, dump truck, bulldozer, and grader. But what happens when the crew finds something unexpected buried deep in the ground?

Dig, Dogs, Dig is a Level One I Can Read book, which means it's perfect for children learning to sound out words and sentences.
