SLJ Review of Farmer Llama's Farm Machines
Information about big farm machines is wrapped into a very cute package as readers (and pre-reading listeners) are led around Farmer Llama’s land, learning all about the massive vehicles, how they work, and how they help farmers do their jobs more efficiently. Readers will learn how farmers accomplished the jobs that machines do before they were invented, like how the baler took over for farmers who had been cutting grass with a scythe and creating haystacks manually. Different parts of each machine are labeled and their jobs are described. The cheerful illustrations are labeled and many of those terms are defined in the glossary at the end of the book. Careful readers can take Farmer Llama’s quiz to get their llama-diplomas–they could even download their diploma from a link provided at the back of the book. VERDICT Farm-loving kiddos will adore these. First purchases all around.
