A boy delights in the discovery that diggers can dance!
When a young boy’s grandmother tells him that diggers can dance, he wants to see the dancing in action! But the diggers stay parked in a row outside their window while it rains. As the boy and his grandmother wait for the skies to clear, they decide to bake together.
Using his imagination, the boy discovers that baking and diggers have a lot in common. He scoops and shovels sugar, digs in the dough, and soon the sun returns. He runs out to watch the diggers, and they really do dance: dipping low, lifting high, swinging, bending, and spinning!
