There are so many great floats at the town parade: the Young Farmers’ Club, the Sports Team, the Outdoor Club. Tractor Mac can’t wait to see which one he gets to pull. Then he finds out that his friends have been asked to pull all of the floats he wanted, and all that is left is the Mrs. J.’s Petals and Posies, Ribbons and Roses float. Tractor Mac’s friends laugh and say that he will be the cutest float in the parade. But when Tractor Mac sees a picture of Mrs. J. as a little girl on a red tractor that looks just like him, he realizes that together, they really will be the parade’s best float.
