Construction trucks and dinosaurs combine in this sequel to DIGGERSAURS! There are surprises in store in this rhyming, treasure-hunt adventure, where the emphasis is on demolition and exploration!

When building work is done, it's time for fun! A dozen DIGGERSAURS crunch and crush, excavate and explore...perhaps for gold...or something more? Our familiar diggersaur friends--WRECKERSAURUS! DUMPERSAURUS! DOZERSAURUS, and more--are back with their rip-roaring sound effects. While exploring and demolishing, these helpful Diggersaurs discover a fantastical treasure--a whole new kind of SAURUS! Keen-eyed readers can go back and search for jewels and treasure on every spread for added fun. Truck and dinosaur lovers will devour this all new adventure.

DIGGERSAURS EXPLORE is a delightful sequel to the book taking the toddler world by storm! Whether you have a little one who loves construction vehicles or dinosaurs, diggersaurs are a charming expansion of these concepts into a cohesive story. In this book, the diggersaurs that we met in the first book are going exploring. They hope that they will find gold or maybe something old. Along the way, they encounter challenges that the diggersaurs use their special skills to solve (for instance, huge grassy bumps that the mowersaurus mows while the rollersaurus rolls them flat).

What I loved: Everything about this book is truly delightful! Each page features brightly colored full-page illustrations that have high appeal for young readers, especially with the accompanying rhyming text. Each diggersaur also has its own sound that little ones will love to imitate (for instance, the whirrr of the drillersaurus). There is also a bonus story in tiny letters with the people who accompany the diggersaurs on their adventure. My toddler is a particular fan of some of the things they say along the way and loves to point them out, like a small seek-and-find on each page. There's also an actual seek-and-find in the hidden treasure throughout the book, which is shown in full at the end of the book.

The story itself here is really great! There are themes of teamwork as the diggersaurs work together to move forward, calmly overcoming obstacles as the diggersaurs come up with solutions to each one that they encounter, helping others as they assist the golden diversaurus (eg, a submarine) who was buried in the sand, and following a serious of steps as the diggersaurs work to get to the beach. All of these themes are perfect for young readers.

The text is also large and easy to read for adults who will read this story aloud. The text-to-picture ratio is perfect for even the youngest readers as pages can turn quickly. The people dialogue and hidden treasures add some fun complexity for older picture book readers. This could really appeal to a wide age range for these reasons and can capture attention for many, many reads.

Final verdict: Delightful and with great themes, DIGGERSAURS EXPLORE is a fantastic pick for young readers. Adventure, action, and plenty of colorful images make this an easy win and a series worth following!
