‘Sam and Dave Dig a Hole’ by Mac Barnett

Book cover: Sam & Dave Dig a Hole, by Mac Barnett and illustrated by Jon Klassen. Illustration depicts two boys, each holding a shovel, and a dog inside a deep hole in the ground. At ground-level, a cat peers down into the hole at them.
In mid-February, a woman named C.L. Murphy donated a copy of Sam & Dave Dig a Hole by Mac Barnett to Bellview Elementary School library, given in observance of “International Book Giving Day” on Feb. 14.

The book depicts a quest by the title characters to dig until they find something spectacular.

Teacher-librarian Lauren Hall read the book aloud during classroom visits to the library. And her listeners got really involved: groaning and shouting, “No!” at each wrong decision by the characters. Definitely a read-aloud success!
