Children's LiteratureWritten by an award-winning farmer and children's author, this colorful picture book introduces young readers to the large machines necessary to operate a modern farm. This is farming on a grand scale, a scale that produces many of the food products we ingest daily. The excellent color photos provide a perspective on the enormity that farming has become today, while personalizing it with family members as they assist in the daily process. Machines such as chisel plows, grain drills, choppers, and combines and their uses will soon become common vocabulary after reading this interesting book. A few black-and-white period photos of the author's grandfather and his farming machines are included for contrast. 2006, Boyds Mills Press, Ages 5 to 7.
