I recently reviewed a book that I think is a good trend in picture books for children. Big Tractors is filled with information even adults will find useful, but the book doesn't talk down to children. The pictures are wonderful and most important it shows children what the big business of farming is like.
Farming is big business. Big tractors are required to do the planting and harvesting on large commercial farms. Big Tractors gives an overview of how these tractors look and what they do in language a child can understand.
The pictures are outstanding. They show off the tractors and implements to good advantage. In fact, the pictures are so good Daddy or Grandpa may be interested in looking through the book.
Another feature I liked is the timeline showing how tractors have changed to adapt to the new farming methods. I highly recommend this book if your child is interested in tractors. Even if you live on a small farm and your child is familiar with tractors, the pictures of monster tractors give another perspective on farming.
I reviewed this book for PR by the Book.
