Book Review: ‘Driving my Tractor’

I would like to share with you one of Little Man’s most favourite books at the moment. It is called ‘Driving my Tractor’, written by Jan Dobbins and illustrated by David Sim.20150216_095501

The story follows a farmer driving his tractor around his farm and picking up lots of farm animals as he goes. Little Man loves to make the animal noises and responds really well to the illustrations. Not only do you get a fantastic story book but you also get a CD. On the CD is the story but the musical version! Little Man likes to have the CD playing and we sit together and follow the story. It is a great catchy song; so catchy in fact I have been singing it for days! Little Man responds well to music and he loves the happy and sad parts of the song, telling me that the Farmer is sad because he has lost his animals.20150216_095521

I would definitely recommend this book for toddlers, it is wonderfully engaging and fun too which always helps when you are trying to encourage books and reading.20150216_095604

There are more in the series which I am intending on buying as this one has been such a hit in our house.

      I would highly recommend the ‘barefoot books’ books. They are really interactive.
