It was morning and the big trucks were ready to work.
“Let’s hoist,” said Crane.
“Let’s push,” said Dozer.
“Let’s dig,” said Digger.
Together they built tall buildings for working.
They built roads for driving and bridges for crossing.
They built and built until the loud whistle blew.
“I’m beat,” said Crane.
“Me too,” said Dozer.
The other big trucks took a break.
But Digger did not.
He had found something in the rubble.
“Hello there,” he said.
The flower was tiny, but it was beautiful.
Every day, while the other big trucks built, Digger visited the flower.
He watered it when its leaves looked dry.
He shielded it on windy days.
And just before he switched off for the night, Digger sang the flower a bedtime song.
The flower grew. But the city grew, too.
Soon, every space had been filled.
Every space but one.
“We need to put a building here,” said Crane.
Dozer started his engine.
Before Digger could stop him…
Dozer blew a big puff of smoke and cut the flower down.
Then the other big trucks went back to work.
But Digger did not.
When the smoke cleared, Digger saw something in the rubble.
“Little seeds,” he said.
He scooped them up and drove.
He drove past the tall buildings.
Past the farthest house on the farthest street.
He drove to a place no big truck had ever been.
There, Digger stopped.
He dug and scooped and tucked the seeds into the warm earth.
Every day, Digger cared for the seeds.
He watered them when their leaves looked dry.
He shielded them on windy days.
And just before he switched off for the night, Digger sang the flowers a bedtime song.
