Without a tractor, nothing happens on the farm! Even the youngest children who have encountered tractors in picture books, as wooden toys or as characters in TV shows know that. And yet it is always a surprise how early the word "tractor" enters children's vocabularies.
This book presents this most popular piece of farm equipment at work on its usual jobs - with different trailers or during the harvest - but also in situations that might not be familiar to young readers: moving snow, mowing the lawn, and with the combine harvester at midnight. In this book, children can witness one of their favorite vehicles in action and, with the help of numerous flaps, follow and understand its movements.
