"This is top-notch nonfiction for the very young, introducing readers to desert wildlife in general and in particular to the remarkable spadefoot toad..." 04/01/2001 Riverbank Review
"Rich in sensory details, full of observational delights, yet never over the heads of younger readers and listeners, DIG, WAIT, LISTEN is a rare breed of book: it imparts solid information and engages from start to finish. Sayre's added notes divulge more about this fascinating creature and its desert neighbors." - Christine Alfano Spring 2002
