Praise for I Dig

"A beach book for new readers. . . . starry moments, as well as the energetic line that characterizes Cepeda's technique in rendering backgrounds and figures alike, lend vitality to this simple story. Kids will dig it."—Kirkus Reviews "Only 14 words are used to tell the story and several are repeated to reinforce sight-reading and bolster beginning readers’ confidence. Digital illustrations bring energy to the story in sketches of the swirling wind, some soaring kites, and sailboats skimming by on the horizon. . . . A whimsical tale that will be welcomed and enjoyed by youngsters with the desire to read."—School Library Journal
