A great lesson on eating healthy, farm fresh foods.
Tractor Mac is a charming story of a tractor and farm animals. In this particular story Tractor Mac and some of the animals find some food missing from the farm. When they look into it, they find that the pigs had stolen all the food! Tractor Mac told the other animals not to worry because they were going to the farmer’s market. While at the farmer’s market they learned what foods are good for you and what is not. The illustrations in the book are colorful and bright and work well with t

Not one of books we've read by Billy Steers has been less than a five star book. Not one. They're just so cute! Julia really adores them and I can't wait to get the rest of the books he's written!

This book is similar to books like "Thomas the Tank Engine". This is a good read aloud for students and informs them of good food choices. Good for elementary students K-3.
