Format: Board book

Rating: 1-5 (5 is an excellent or a Starred review) 5

What did you like about the book? This simple board book highlights work at the farm. Each page shows a farm vehicle and then the opposing page flips open to reveal how the vehicle is used. The vehicles are identified on the opposing flap. What sets this book apart from other farm vehicle books is the variety of vehicles. There is a horse trailer, bale lifter and all terrain vehicle. The illustrations are large and colorful so that very young children will be able to identify the vehicles. I also liked that the book only highlighted six vehicles.

Anything you didn’t like about it? I liked everything about this board book.

To whom would you recommend this book?  Children ages 1-3

Who should buy this book? Public libraries, elementary school libraries, day care centers

Where would you shelve it? Picture books

Should we (librarians/readers) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? Yes
