Helpful Tractorby Melinda Melton Crow, Chad Thompson
Tractor works hard all day on the farm. At the end of the day, he is tired and dirty. Thankfully his friends are ready to help him relax.
Children's Literature - Jillian KobelinTractor is ready to help work on the farm in this volume of the "Stone Arch Readers" series. Tractor's friends School Bus, Fire Truck, and Train see him off as he heads out to the farm to help for the day. Later, they are there to help him clean off when he returns. This Level 1 book is appropriate for early readers who are working on simple sentences, easy vocabulary, and word repetition. A note for parents suggests tactics for supporting a new reader, such as discussing the ideas in the story, talking about the characters, and reading with expression. The book also includes a short glossary, containing key words in the story that may be new to the reader, such as "helped," "farm," "tired," and "clean." The illustrations personify the vehicles with friendly cartoon faces, most detailed in primary colors. The simple pictures, storyline, and word use combine to make this a great choice to page through with a new reader! Reviewer: Jillian Kobelin
