William Bee's Wonderful World of Tractors and Farm Machines Review

Featured Books for 3+ readers Featured Books for 5+ readers Non-Fiction Transport / Construction

There are no better books for young vehicle fans, and William Bee’s new big, lively, information-packed book tells them everything they’ll want to know about tractors and the machines that work on our farms. From the smallest tractors – the illustration shows one in an orchard – to the really massive ones, ones that pull, push, lift and scoop, they’re all here illustrated across double pages. The author’s friendly text is full of information about what the different tractors are for, and how important they are in providing our food. There’s even space for a look at the very first tractors, and we meet William’s carthorse, Brian, too.  Collect the set with William Bee’s Wonderful Worlds of Trains and Trucks.

William Bee's Wonderful World of Tractors and Farm Machines Synopsis

New in paperback!

William Bee is back and this time he's showing us his amazing collection of farm machines and tractors. There's his teeny tiny tractor for picking fruit, the widest tractor in the world that can cover acre after acre, tractors for pulling ploughs or for pushing smelly loads of manure, his combine harvester and not forgetting his animals, including cows, Daisy and Buttercup, plus Brian the horse. The Cone Family are back to help (or is that hinder?) on the farm, as is Sparky the dog.

Perfect for every child fascinated by farms, tractors and amazing vehicles. Brmm Brmm, let's get farming!
