Children's Literature - Dr. Judith Campbell
The tractor is the most important machine on the farm. After reading this book any youngster will know several different functions of the tractor from preparing the soil to harvesting the crops. Realistic photographs combined with illustrations put the size and power of these machines into perspective for young readers. Other books in the "Mighty Machines" series include Airplane, Fire Truck, Truck, Race Car, and Big Rig.

Crisp, full-color photographs of Trucks, Tractors and, respectively, other building and farm equipment illustrate Claire Llewellyn's "Mighty Machines" series in typical Dorling Kindersley fashion: Close-ups, excised from the original photograph and set against a white background, focus readers' attention on particulars detailed by annotations and side- bars-here, "amazing facts" and drawings to illustrate relative size. Whether perused for pleasure or quickly scanned for oral or written mini-reports, youngsters will find fascinating both of these volumes from the "Look Inside" series.
