Tractor

By Sally Sutton
Illustrated by Brian Lovelock

Head to the farm to see the tractors ploughing, spraying, moving and harvesting in this new addition to the best-selling ROADWORKS series that makes the perfect interactive read-aloud for vehicle-obsessed kids.

Down on the farm, let’s cut the earth. Chop, chop! Don’t stop! Break that ground! Down on the farm, let’s cut the earth. What makes that cut-cut-cutting sound? A book in the ROADWORKS series full of rhythmic words that describe the machinery used in farm work from planting the seeds right through to harvesting the corn. Right at the centre of the action is the family tractor!

  • In the back of the book, a diagram provides details on all the different parts that make a tractor.
  • Onomatopoeia and rhythmic read-aloud text is great for language development.
