We've been checking out the tractor books in the library. While this had the potential to be a nice story about a boy with his toy tractor, the same one his dad and uncle had growing up, it fell incredibly short.

My major gripes with this story are as follows: the aesthetics of it were just bad, the family had a junk pile where they just threw away old stuff in their yard (which is both wasteful, messy, and the opposite of being a good steward), the house and yard looked run down, and the parents
This book isn't amazingly written, but it teaches solid values about appreciating what you have and repairing items instead of discarding them (great for our current "throw away" society). W really liked it.

Recommends it for: everyone
In a world where everyone wants the newest, shiniest, biggest, best "toys", its nice to find a book with the message that you already have all that you want or need!
Love what you have!
