About the Book


Hitch up the plow! When spring rolls around, the big tractor goes to work. The tractor is the farmer’s most important piece of equipment. It’s his “Ol’ partner” that helps him get jobs done around the farm all year long. This boldly illustrated picture book follows a tractor through the seasons as it plows, plants, harvests, and tackles other important chores. Graphic illustrations with cinematic perspectives will mesmerize kids who are fascinated by huge machinery.


“Clement is a deity of vehicular lit. . . . The computer-rendered images are dramatic and beautiful, treating readers to a wide variety of colors and perspectives.” —School Library Journal 

“A burly man in a plaid shirt and baseball cap addresses his tractor as "Ol' Partner," reminding his green-painted friend of all the jobs they do together over the course of one agricultural year, from spring to winter. . . . Impressive graphics on a series of spreads show different tools hooked up to the tractor as it assists with tasks throughout the seasons, ending with a lovely post-harvest activity.” —Kirkus Reviews
