Day 30 of the new challenge from Books and Cupcakes where we will be focusing on children’s books!Mike Mulligan and the Steam Shovel is my Nephew’s favorite book at the moment. First published in 1939, the story follows Mike and his Steam Shovel Mary Anne. They compete against other shovels and construction engines powered by electric, gas, and diesel and try to find their place in the world. Mary Anne and Mike have heart and prove they can work just as hard as anyone else, but in the end it’s not their work that makes them great.
