Stretch! Fly! Dive! What are two things that small children love? Animals and big machines, of course. In this energetic board book, the two are combined to show how the actions of seven animals mirror those of seven mighty machines. With a single word to indicate the action, the illustrations show animals like a whale diving in the ocean while on the opposite page, a submarine does the same; a badger digs in the dirt, mimicking an excavator, and an elephant squirts water just like a pumper truck. To add to the fun, a small elf-like creature appears on every spread, giving toddlers something else to discover. Perfect for expanding their vocabulary or just for their amusement, this is the perfect book to share with very young children.
