Do you have a little one that loves construction vehicles? At some point, many children, especially little boys, become fascinated with the big, loud machines. Can you blame them? The trucks are big, they move around and do awesome things like dig in the dirt, break apart large structures, and make loud noise. What’s not to love?
Now you can combine these cool vehicles with biblical lessons with the Building God’s Kingdom series by Andy Holmes. In the two titles that I reviewed, you’ll meet the lovable trucks Diggit, Stretch, Dozer, and Tipper. These four friends work hard and are always ready to build!
In Diggit Saves the Day, the four construction vehicles are in the midst of their busy day when they come across a small squirrel named Earl who has somehow ended up in their work site. He can’t find his way home and needs help. Diggit thinks that they are too busy to take time to find the squirrel’s home, but his friends remind him that God would want them to take the time to do His work—helping those in need.
Tipper Tells a Lie touches on the subject of whether or not it is ever okay to not tell the truth when Tipper tells a fib in order to keep up with his friends as they run errands throughout the day. When things start to go awry, he continues to lie only to discover that being untruthful never brings about good.
I love that these books tie up the stories by pointing back to the things that the Bible teaches us. It’s important to instill a biblical moral compass in our children from a young age so that they are “trained up in the way they should go.” These brightly colored board books featuring friendly construction trucks are incredibly appealing to little eyes and hands.
