Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel


This book by Virginia Lee Burton was first published in 1939.  I found this awesome deal on sale at our local Great Canadian Superstore a few months ago for $5- it includes the book- Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel, an audio cd, stickers, postcards, and a little activity book.  Score!!  Oh just look at this page of Mike and Mary Anne being VERY SAD and Mary Anne weeping big steam shovel tears!  Aren't you just indignant at the NO STEAM SHOVELS WANTED sign??  :)

  1. Oh, that's so cute! Mike Mulligan has been a favourite book for all of my kids.

  2. My cousin used to recite this from memory at 18 months old, adorable. And really a great story.

    Would love for you to link this with Cozy book hop this week!


  3. What a terrific find! I love that book too- such a classic. Also, weird that our site won't let you comment... I'm not sure what the trouble is. Glad you're still stopping by though!
