Although children are only able to grasp the basic functions and tasks that a farmer and his farm equipment perform when harvesting their crops, a picture book can explain many things to these young kids.
One particular book, Johnny Tractor and the Big Surprise, outlines the tale of two pieces of John Deere farm equipment that encounter a variety of troubles on Merriweather Farm. Although the work is geared towards a younger audience, there are plenty of practical tips and real farming techniques highlighted by the author, according to The Charlottetown Guardian.
The news source reported that many of the problems that are encountered on the farm related to real-life issues that farmers face every day. Children can see the basic functions of a tractor and a John Deere Gator vehicle.
According to Amazon.com, the Johnny Tractor and the Big Surprise book is a tale of fictional pieces of farm equipment that work together to accomplish a variety of real tasks that one might encounter when working on a farm.
