I Am a Backhoe by Anna Grossnickle Hines


I Am a Backhoe
by Anna Grossnickle Hines
Tricycle Press; 2010; unpaged


Boys love backhoes and other construction vehicles. They love to make noises and get all excited when they see them. That is why I’m sure they will love I Am a Backhoe by Anna Hines. There isn’t really a story, just pages of a boy pretending he is things like a backhoe, dump truck and bulldozer. After a picture is shown of the little boy, the next page is a picture of the machine. I like that in this book the dad gets involved with the boy in the end and is acting out the machines with him as well. Little boys will eat this one up!
