Okay. I am so excited about this post that I might make it a regular feature on my blog. I mean, I can barely stop looking at my hands long enough to type this post.
Hello hello, my friends!
My birthday month is over and July is here. And you know what July means? Oh, that’s right – it’s Camp Nanowrimo time! For this round of Camp, I’ve decided to do a little something different. Rather than work on my novel via writing or editing
because why edit when you could procrastinate, I’ll be posting a NEW BLOG POST EVERY DAY IN JULY.
Yes, with the all caps. No, I’m not sorry for screaming. I need your help to stay accountable! Feel free to message me and send writing encouragements. Woot woot!
So… here’s post one:
What could possibly be as appealing as Anna Dewdney’s llamas? Anna Dewdney’s trucks!
The Big Rigs are working hard at the construction site when Little Excavator rolls up, eager to help. But Little Excavator isn’t big enough to CHUG CHUG CHUG! like the Dump Truck as it loads dirt to lug or MOUND MOUND MOUND! like the ‘Dozer as it pushes up the ground. Little Excavator wants to smooth out bumps and dig up dirt, but he is just too small. As Big Rigs around him WORK WORK WORK! they finally find a job that no other machine can do…except for Little Excavator!
My little boy absolutely loves this book! It rhymes, it has trucks, and he uses his toys to act out the story. I definitely recommend getting your hands on a copy for the little truck lover in your own life!
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.
