Big Tractors Book Review & Giveaway #casey&friends
Big Tractors with Casey & Friends!
My boys love anything with wheels. So when we were asked to review the Big Tractors with Casey & Friends book we were excited. The boys loved this book and my little guy can’t get enough of the die cast tractor that came with it. I love watching them sit on the couch as my oldest reads it to the other two. It just melts my heart. If your little ones are like mine then they will absolutely love these books!
This collections will have 4 different ones, 2 have already been released. A Year on the Farm with Casey & Friends (released in January) and the one we received Big Tractors with Casey & Friends (released in April). And 2 that are being released this year, Combines with Casey & Friends (is being released next month in June) and Planters & Cultivators with Casey & Friends (will be released in September)
Let me tell you a little about them.
Meet “Casey & Friends.”

Follow Casey the farmer, Tillus the worm, Big Red the tractor, and a whole cast of cartoon equipment characters who teach important life lessons gleaned from the farm, like thinking ahead and working as a team. Each title is licensed by CASE IH and highlights a different aspect of farm equipment and technology with educational sidebars, picture glossaries and fun farming facts for added learning possibilities.
A Year on the Farm with Casey & Friends (Jan. 2015) introduces children to the world of modern farming by teaching them about the different jobs a farmer does each season.

Big Tractors with Casey & Friends (Apr. 2015) 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.
Combines with Casey & Friends (June 2015) explains the step-by-step processes used to harvest crops by the most complex machines on the farm. Follow Cody and Kellie—the combines of Happy Skies Farm—as they do the work of three machines: gathering, separating, and unloading grain and corn.
Planters & Cultivators with Casey & Friends (Sept. 2015) features the specialized farm equipment used to cultivate, plant and spray crops. Learn how Tammi the Tiller, Evan the Early Riser Planter and Peter the Patriot Sprayer work together to make this year’s crop bigger than ever.

“Know a kid or two who thinks corn comes from the grocery’s freezer section?

A fun (and educational) read for kids and their grandparents!”
