A modern classic now available in Spanish. Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel is the story of a steam-shovel operator and his steam shovel - the beguiling Mary Anne - which he would not desert, even though competition from gas and diesel-motored shovels was ruining him. The solution to Mike's problem is classic in its simplicity. Under pressure to show Mary Anne at her best, Mike digs the foundation for the town hall of Popperville and in his haste forgets to leave a way for Mary Anne to get out! The ingenious townspeople suggest that Mary Anne be remodeled into a furnace and Mike be retained to keep her heart and boiler warm.

    " I don't love Virginia Lee Burton's illustrations nor her story here compared to her other childrens books. Still, there is a certain charm to this book. "

    " This book is ok. I think boys might enjoy reading it. You can also use it when you talk about man vs. machine and conflict. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Becca | 4/10/2011

    " This is a book of inspiration for kids. It shows how to never give up even when your facing giants. I would use this as an independent read, or as a large group read and emphasize the courageous Mike and his steam shovel. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David | 3/16/2011

    " Mike said that Mary Ann could dig as much in one day as 100 men in a week, but he was never really sure that it was true... "

    " There's kind of a John Henry vibe going in this book. I wish times were such that people could have the freedom to sit all day and just watch a basement being dug. Mike Mulligan's steam shovel is a super adorable machine, too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Claudia | 12/7/2010

    " I think that this book is great for using as students talk about locomotives and parts of a train. I might use this more in a center and a choice of book for students! "

    " Follows a boy and his shovel. They must do something they promised they could, but the task is daunting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tiffany | 11/3/2010

    " Probably my favorite of Virginia Lee Burton's books (that I've read). I like the idea that as we adapt to changes around us, we are able to still be happy and useful. "
