A tractor is more than a piece of farm machinery. It's farmer's partner that helps him get the hard work done. This dynamic picture book shows a big tractor from spring to harvest—planting, cultivating, harvesting, and doing other important tasks on a busy farm. Bold illustrations, coupled with a simple and lyrical text, show a tractor at work throughout the seasons.

Praise For Big Tractor

Clement is a deity of vehicular lit. . . . The computer-rendered images are dramatic and beautiful, treating readers to a wide variety of colors and perspectives.' —School Library Journal

A burly man in a plaid shirt and baseball cap addresses his tractor as "Ol' Partner," reminding his green-painted friend of all the jobs they do together over the course of one agricultural year, from spring to winter. . . . Impressive graphics on a series of spreads show different tools hooked up to the tractor as it assists with tasks throughout the seasons, ending with a lovely post-harvest activity.' —Kirkus Reviews
