I Am a Backhoe by Anna Grossnickle Hines

I Am a Backhoe, written and illustrated by Anna Grossnickle Hines, is the book I couldn’t write. A little boy plays in the dirt or with his blocks, always imagining that he’s really piece of heavy equipment – a backhoe, a crane truck, a bulldozer. Hines’s rhythmic text is never forced, and her simple, colorful, digitally enhanced illustrations will appeal especially to very young children. The book works o I once tried to write a picturebook to suit my truck-happy young son, but nothing worked. The book works on many levels, reflecting both the reality of a child’s happy and imaginative play as well as his longing to be big and powerful. And in another retro touch, I Am a Backhoe also ends with Dad (the big and powerful) coming home.

I Am A Backhoe (2010). About book: Summary: A young boy imagines himself to be different types of trucks as he plays in the sand. Good book to use with Toddler or Preschool story time. Bright, bold illustrations. Text encourages children to move like the truck and also to guess what truck the author is talking about. Good for children to participate with during the read aloud

By Anna Grossnickle Hines I Am a Backhoe. If you can’t drive a piece of heavy machinery, the next best thing may be to become one. In Hines’ latest picture book, a little boy shows off his powers of observation and imitation by becoming, yes, a backhoe but also a bulldozer, crane truck, dump truck, and roller. Then the boy climbs on Daddy, who takes the part of a flatbed truck. Daddy backs up, beeping, of course, and delivers the boy to the couch, where they proceed to read a book called My Big Trucks. Hines’ text is simple but evocative: I stretch my arms into the sky, way up high.

Good interactive book to read to children (2-5 years) that involves their imagination and movement! Get in gear to be a flatbed truck, or somersault across the room like a roller truck. After reading this book, kids imagination goes to work and they transform to trucks. Vrooom....Beep beep beep...

Love the book and my boys do too but when I received this one as I was reading it, it is missing four pages!
One of our favorite books. My son and I love acting out the pictures in the book together. I originally borrowed it from the library and he enjoyed it so much I ordered it to have in our permanent collection.
There must be a hundred truck books out there, and most are well illustrated. I know because I've bought at least a dozen for my 30-month-old grandson. However, this one is pure gold. What the author captures (and I blush to say that I hadn't quite realized this until I read the book) is the way little boys don't just play with trucks -- they pretend to BE trucks. After reading this book, my husband said, "That's exactly what he does in the sandbox." When I read him this book the first time, Nate was captivated even more than usual. Best of all, the last sequence shows the little boy mounted on his Daddy's flat back; Daddy, of course, is now a flatbed truck transporting his son. The last line is My Daddy likes trucks too! IMHO, pure gold!
My boys love this book, I bought it for my 7 year old, it's under his reading level for sure but he loves it anyway.
This one is a favorite for our two-year-old son. Lots of action as the little boy in the story moves and makes noises like several different construction vehicles. Fun and interactive.
My 3 year olds favorite book! Dig, dig, dig!!
My grandsons favorite book at 20 months old. Helping him learn about make-believe;stimulates a childs imagination. He loves vehicles and seeing what they can do.
