Generations have fallen in love with this classic story of a grandson and grandfather whose visit to a family farm with a special tractor brings back memories.
Grandpa Joe takes his grandson Timmy back to the site of his family’s farm, where the old house and a ramshackle barn still stand. The visit stirs up memories for Grandpa Joe—in particular, the majesty of his own father's shiny red tractor, now rusting in the forgotten fields. An ideal gift, this picture book evokes nostalgia while demonstrating a special bond between a grandparent and grandchild.
Look for the sequel GRANDMA'S FARM, coming Fall 2022!
