Welcome to a new installment of Brightly Storytime, our video series for kids. We’re reading along with beloved author and illustrator Anna Dewdney’s Little Excavator, an inspiring picture book that’s just right for construction-loving kiddos. Young readers are transported to a construction site where they meet Little E, a small excavator with big aspirations, and his big rig friends. Little E is ready to pitch in on the construction site, but it’s hard to find room to work with such loud, strong machines motoring around. He tries to lift and lug and dig, but he just can’t seem to do the stuff his bigger friends can. Until, finally, there’s one last construction task to be done … and the job’s a perfect fit for Little E.
