Excellent, Toddler, Preschool, Farm life
Stony Meadow Farm has a great watermelon patch, and Farmer Bill is excited to grow a big melon to enter in the Fruit and Vegetable Show. But watermelons take a long time to grow. Pete, the pig, and his brother, Paul, want to make them to grow faster and try to help. By the time they finished, most of the patch was ruined. With the encouragement of Tractor Mac and the other animals, the pigs find a small melon plant and learn how to care for it and to be patient while it grows. Their melon turns into a real beauty, and Farmer Bill is able to enter it in the show and it won!
