"Dig, dig, dig. Lift, turn, tip.

About the Author
Praise For I Am a Backhoe…
Starred Review, Kirkus, January 15, 2010: "The digital artwork has a soft look and feel and features vibrant colors for both the clearly outlined objects and the blank backgrounds. Spare text with a simple vocabulary makes this an excellent choice for both toddlers and those who are just beginning to read. The author has turned an ordinary (and overdone) topic into something extraordinary."
Review, School Library Journal: "This is a worthy choice for preschoolers and kindergarteners with a big appetite for truck books."
Review, Readertotz.com: "Truly a feast ... If you have a truck lover, or a tot with eyes drawn to construction, be sure to share I Am a Backhoe!"
