It's Tuesday, y'all!
I'm so excited to participate in
If you're anything like me,
you l.o.v.e buying new books but I don't always have time to wander the aisles
at my local bookstore.
Can you identify?
That's what is so lovely about Deanna's linky!
I can read the many suggestions, choose a new favorite and immediately buy it!
What's not to love about that?!
Let's get to it...
The book I want to share with you
is one that I just learned about
It was selected for the
Jumpstart's 2013 Read for the Record campaign.
Did your school participate?
Here's just a little snippet about it...
Otis is a friendly little tractor who loves his home on the farm.
He works hard all day with his farmer and every evening,
he putt-putts into the stall
that is his very own.
Life is good for sweet, little Otis.
One night, the farmer brings
a beautiful calf into the barn
where it cries and cries
for its mama.
The sweet baby is inconsolable
until it hears Otis softly
putt puff puttedy chuffing
in the next stall.
The two become inseparable friends.
Later, the farmer purchases
a big yellow tractor
that succeeds in robbing Otis
of all the work he once enjoyed.
Otis is even expelled
to the back of the barn
where the grass grows taller than his tires.
He falls into a deep depression
where even his friend
cannot reach him.
baby calf wanders away from the farm
and finds itself
in a dangerous situation.
Who can save baby calf?
Big Yellow Tractor
has the ability,
but Otis has something stronger...
the power of friendship!
This book is simply precious.
Its theme is very similar to
if you're familiar with these two.
