A New York Times bestselling powerhouse team presents a doggie, a bone, and tons of determination that remind us that going for what you want brings ginormous surprises.

Tiny may be a small dog, but don't let that fool you. He's a pooch with power who knows what he wants. And he's going for it. But oh, those pesky pessimists ­­ they're trying to rain on Tiny's dig­parade! Thank goodness for one special boy who believes in Tiny, because in the end, this dog's grit proves that he's the little pup who could… dig up some giant surprises!

Tiny and the Big Dig is an inspiring book that you will want to have in your library. Tiny is little dog on a big dig mission. He knows he is "I-don't-give-up strong"and so he doesn't listen to all the other animals that tell him to give up or quit because he is too small. His self-confidence and the cheering of his boy, give him the perseverance to keep digging until he reaches his goal.

We loved this book! The message, the pictures and the rhyming sentence structure were perfect for story time. This book is not only engaging and fun, but it was also a great way to have a discussion with children about understanding their self worth and finding their own confidence. We also talked about achieving goals and overcoming obstacles to reach those goals. You will love Tiny, like we did, and you will love seeing him reach his goal in his big dig!

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
