If you've yet to come across Tractor Ted's series of books then your kids have been missing out...well, the kids AND you!
This week, I thought I'd try Tractor Ted's 'Who Goes Moo' story book. I say TRY because to sit my 'very busy' 3 year old nephew down quietly for more than 2 minutes is no mean feat!
WELL, blow me down, a miracle occurred, he was immediately engrossed!
The story, in short, is about Midge the farm dog, a gorgeous little terrier & friend of Tractor Ted's.
Midge needs to find milk for his owner's morning cuppa and good old Tractor Ted gives Midge clues as to where he can find it!
Along the way, in his search, Midge encounters a range of farm animals. The imagery is fabulous and any child and certainly any budding young farmer, would be enthralled & mesmerized by the detailed and 'real life' pictures all photographed within the heart of the countryside, in the West Country.
It's educational, engaging and entertaining and I have to admit, a really fun read.
Personally, I love the fact that both Midge and his owner, Farmer Tom, really ARE a genuine, real life, bonafide, farmer and his dog!
How novel is THAT?
Tractor Ted is a tractor...obviously, BUT he's a bright green, loveable, tractor and this I believe, goes a long way in helping children get in touch with caring for our
countryside, our animals and to understand at the very heart, of where some of our foods come from...our U.K farms.
Tractor Ted stories are not only educational, they also bring REAL farm adventures to life and it's easy to see why this little green tractor is already loved by millions of
I can guarantee that reading any one of Tractor Ted's books will lead to the purchase of his whole series.
Tractor Ted isn't just loved by tractor fanatics you know...
...I'm rather looking forward to his next adventure myself!
