Fire Engine Man and Digger Man

Andrew greatly enjoyed Train Man (see this post for more info on it), and he would see two other books in the series advertised on the back of Train Man. So he regularly asked if I would get those other two books. As a treat during Covid reading when we were doing it via Face Time, I ordered Fire Engine Man and Digger Man by Andrea Zimmerman and David Clemesha (Amazon links in this post are Titus2’s Amazon’s Affiliate link, and Titus2 is blessed from qualifying purchases, see the Privacy Policy). Andrew and Benjamin were thrilled!

Fire Engine Man and Digger Man are simple board books with engaging illustrations. The one-sentence-per-page story line involves a little boy who loves his play enough to think about some day doing it as a vocation. He imagines all he would do if he were a real fireman or a digger man. One of the best parts for me is that he has a little brother and includes him through out each book.

Momma, Will You?

Momma, Will You? by Dori Chaconas was recommended by a reader of the Grandma’s Book Bag series. It turned out to be a favorite, especially with three-year-old Benjamin. This simple story has a farm setting with a mommy and two children. The children ask mommy one question per page about something they might do with one of the animals, giving her a choice of answering, “Yes, or no, or maybe.” 

On the following page, Mommy gives the answer with a cute explanation. Benjamin loves guessing what the answer will be, and the more we read the book, of course, the less guessing! 

The illustrations are outstanding and truly make this book a delight to read. 

Trusting in Jesus,

“Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and
power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure
they are and were created” (Revelation 4:11).

  1. Oh gosh – Fire Engine Man! I think I still know that book off by heart. I haven’t thought of it in years, but it brings back wonderful memories. My kids loved it.
