Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3–Peterson gives readers an accurate firsthand view of modern, often computerized equipment used on todays farms. Her easy-to-understand text describes both the machines and their functions. She also gives readers insight into why she loves running a 500-cow dairy farm in Wisconsin. Everyone in our family loves to plow because the earth smells so good and we can imagine the crops growing as we work. Cutting hay is another favorite job because the alfalfa and clover blossoms smell heavenly. The short, informative paragraphs are surrounded by excellent color photographs that extend the text. The pictures, both large and small, include close-ups and distance shots that show the size and function of the machines. Children who love tractors and other big machines will think this book is fantastic.–Carolyn Janssen, Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, OH

From Booklist

Gr. 1-3. From a heavy-duty miniloader called a Skid Steer to an eight-wheel tractor with wheel wells "so big you can almost stand in them," the dozen rural workhorses here will give young fans of heavy machinery an unusual set of monster vehicles to pore over. Writing in an invitingly personal way ("Today our family uses all kinds of machines to help us farm"), Peterson escorts viewers from one field to the next, while Lundquist shows what each behemoth does. Alternating views of the machines at work in various seasons with young children posing in rustic settings, Lundquist pairs the commentary with big, bright color photos that range from distant aerial shots to close-ups of freshly chopped hay. An eye-catching follow-up to the board book Big Farm Machines (2002) or to Gail Gibbons' Farming (1988). John Peters

Accurate agriculture books are hard to come by. Chris Peterson uses her own experience on the farm to help convey the message of modern agriculture. The MN Farm Bureau Federation Promotion and Education Committee selected Fantastic Farm Machines as their 2007 Book of the Year.

I purchased this book to use in an activity program for alzheimer's residents. The book is not childish, which is what I wanted and actually very hard to find. The pictures are large and colorful and the wording is easy to read and understand. It is exactly what I was looking for. There are 2 more books in this series and I will definitely be ordering them!

My young boys love farming and everything that goes along with it. This book does an incredible job with the photography to show the readers some of the machines and tractors that are used on farms. Great pictures, great captions. I highly recommed this book.
