It's A GO! Dig Dig Digging ABC by Margaret Mayo

A IS FOR AMBULANCE,

BUSY, BUSY AMBULANCE.

RUSH, RUSH, RUSH!

WHEE-OW, WHEE-OW!

For a certain contingent of kids, big machines are fascinating. Things that dig and float and fly with verve are their favorite things, and Margaret Mayo's Dig Dig Digging ABC (Henry Holt and Company, 2017), all the big boys are there--bulldozers, cranes, diggers, express trains, fire engines--all the favorites are up front to teach the alphabet.

J IS FOR JUMBO JET,

ROARING, SOARING!

Some of the things that go are not those usually seen in alphabet books--kayaks, scooters, windsurfing boards, and velodrome racing bikes-- but all are pictured in action, with onomatopoeic sounds to distinguish them--whooshing, cruising, bumping, whizzing, humming--full of life and action, in a a boardbook that delivers the alphabet with jolly illustrations by artist Alex Ayliffe that give it plenty of go-power.

For kids who just can't get enough of things that go VROOOM, ZOOOM, and RROOOM, here's one just loaded with sound effects and movement.
