This jazzy tune with a swinging brass section and vocal harmonies was written for another library summer reading theme, with references to Louis Sachar’s “Holes” as well as the classic “Mike Mulligan & the Steam Shovel” and “The City of Ember.”

I dig reading - I dig a good book
I dig reading - Come take a look
I dig a book about Stanley Yelnats
Digging holes in the ground (in the ground)
Will he outwit that evil warden?
You’ll have to read it, to see what he found
I dig a book about Mike Mulligan
steam shovel Mary Ann (Mary Ann)
Can they dig the foundation in time?
You’ll have to read it, to see if they can
I dig a book about the City of Ember
a city under the earth
Lina and Doon find that danger’s coming
Will they leave the place of their birth?
(Chorus – omit final “Come take a look”)
