It’s Christmas time at Happy Skies Farm! Tillus the worm, Big Red, Sammy and the rest of the team are excited to celebrate the season. But Casey the farmer is busy working: feeding animals, repairing fences and planning for the year ahead. With so much to do, Casey wonders if she’ll have time to prepare for the holidays. That’s when Tillus and the team unite to make this Christmas extra special for their busy friend.Published by Octane Press, known for their award-winning tractor books, “Casey &Friends” uses photos of CASE IH equipment in real farming situations with cartoon characters to explain how modern farm equipment works in a factual and fun way. Author Holly Dufek, a seasoned educator and national curriculum writer, joins Paul Nunn, Licensed Artist for Disney and Lucas Film, to help kids make the connection with the farm equipment they see in the countryside and the food on their table.
I had a chance to see the book, and it's cute. It's obviously Case IH branded, but even families who are fans of the green kind can have a little diversity on their bookshelves! The cartoon characters are kid-friendly, and the farm equipment photos bring the book alive and attract kids who enjoy seeing big trucks and equipment!
