All the Factors of Why I Love Tractors
When Frankie McGee insists on borrowing yet another book about tractors, his mum crumbles. She begs him to read a book about something else - cars, planes, cranes, trains - anything! Frankie launches into all of the various, glorious factors that make up the love that he has for all tractors - but will he be able to bring his mum around?
With irresistible rhyming text by award-winning author Davina Bell and unforgettable illustrations by Jenny Lovlie, this story is sure to charm and amuse the whole family.

A fun book that uses rhyme to validate and indulge childhood fascinations in particular subjects, like Tractors! A great reminder for us all to let kids explore their interests and curiosities free from grown-up judgement and expectations. It reads aloud brilliantly. I love the wit and humour of the text in this picture book, as well as the diversity of tractor operators in the illustrations. It is also a wonderful celebration of the invaluable importance and role of libraries and librarians in supporting childhood literacy and a lifelong love of reading!
