Barney Backhoe and the Big City Dig by Susan Knopf


Barney Backhoe and the Big City Dig by Susan Knopf

Barney Backhoe goes to the city to help dig the foundation for a big building. Barney is amazed by the big, busy city. On his way to the dig, he helps people he comes across - although his good intentions don't always work out, and he manages to spill paint all over a billboard!!! He's nervous about the work, but does a great job, and when he gets home that night he tells the others about the big city. Next day, Danny Dozer sneaks away to see the city for himself. JT and the others go to find him, and when they find him at the building site with Barney they all chip in and help to finish the project. The John Deere Company was founded in 1837 and is an international brand synonymous with power and quality in everything from farm tractors and heavy construction equipment to lawn mowers. John Deere licenses its name to a wide variety of consumer products from clothing and bedding to collectibles and children's toys.
