This post and giveaway is sponsored by Octane Press. They provided me with one book (Big Tractors with Casey & Friends) and one tractor toy in exchange for this post. All opinions are my own.
There’s a new children’s book in town and it’s geared for the tractor lover in us all. Big Tractors with Casey & Friends, written by Holley Dufek with illustrations by Paul E. Nunn.
Yup, THAT Paul E, Nunn…the one that worked on Pixar’s CARS. He has also worked with Disney, Nickelodeon, and Sesame Street.
This is a new series that centers on children interested in farming and farm equipment. The book is educational, but also entertaining and shares how tractors, combines and tillage equipment operate together on a farm.
The book features CASE IH equipment in real farming situations with cartoon characters explaining how modern arm equipment works in a factual and fun way.
The story follows Casey the Farmer, Tillus the worm, Big Red the tractor, and a cast of cartoon equipment characters, teaching important life lessons gleaned from the farm–things such as–thinking ahead and working as a team.
Casey & Friends Big Tractors 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 int eh field with the rest of the team. Learn about the science of farming and discover how advanced technology makes Big Red and Sammy special.
I loved learning how features such as large double wheels allow tractors to do their job–did you know they will not sink into the soil because double wheels spread the tractor’s weight over a larger area?
