Exceptional photographs that range from tight close-ups to artful aerial shots highlight people and their farm machinery. Twelve pieces of big farm machinery are included, beginning with the ubiquitous tractor and moving on to introduce some less familiar, such as the grain drill and irrigation pivot. The brief text concisely outlines the function of each specialized piece, pointing out the prevalence of machinery on most modern farms compared to the days of horses and one-bottom plows. Author Cris Peterson writes with authority from her Grantsburg, Wisconsin, dairy farm, where many of the photos were taken. (Ages 5–9)
