"Mike Mulligan and his Steam Shovel" is one of the most well loved books in my household. I have 4 son and  4 grandsons who all loved reading this book. (the girls loved it too!) It's showing a little wear from the many, many times those pages have been turned. It was one of those books that the kids had memorized. If you are not familiar with this classic children's story look for it at your local library or book store.
