Everything you wish for in a children's book!
This book has great character development, warmth, and interesting vocabulary. My son is too young to understand all the beautiful descriptions, but he has this book memorized from cover to cover anyway! It is his absolute favorite! And while it is not a quick book to read, we don't mind reading it to him over and over and over again because it is well done and interesting- even to adults. Especially recommended for "gifted" preschoolers interested in tractors or farming.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

The Tractor Book
My two-year-old son does not appreciate the finely crafted words in this book. He just loves tractors. But Joy Cowley writes in beautiful images and clever southern phrases that make reading this book over and over again a real delight. Interesting subject (tractors!!!), a good lesson, and great writing! Story telling done right. I am not overly impressed with the pictures, but since they are for a child, and my son stays riveted through the entire reading of the book, they can't be that bad, now can they?Was this review helpful?
