My boys love any type of vehicle including tractors. We were very excited to check out the new Casey & Friends book series centered around the iconic red CASE IH tractors and other farm equipment.
There are four “Casey & Friends” books set to be released in 2015:
A Year on the Farm with Casey & Friends
Big Tractors with Casey & Friends
Combines with Casey & Friends
Planters & Cultivators with Casey & Friends
We are reviewing the most recent release, Big Tractors with Casey & Friends along with a CASE IH toy tractor.
Big Tractors with Casey & Friends shows how the biggest, most powerful tractors handle the demanding jobs of pulling and powering on the farm. Find out how Big Red and Sammy – the biggest tractors on the farm – use their powerful muscles to work in the field with the rest of the team. Learn about the science of farming and discover how advanced technology makes Big Red and Sammy special.
This is a very colorful and fun book with a cast of cartoon characters explaining how the equipment works. I love all the educational facts found in the sidebars, picture glossaries and fun farming facts. Some of the features include a timeline of the red tractor, explaining the different jobs of various farm machines, and a driver’s point of view from within the tractor explaining what all the components and switches are for. For all of us city (or suburbanite) folks there is even a glossary in the back that defines all the farm terms.
If you have a little tractor fan the Casey & Friends series is a must-have.
I will receive the featured product in exchange for my honest opinion. All opinions are my own.
