I have another fun children's Christmas book to share with you today. From the farm-based children's series ?Casey & Friends? comes, Casey's Bright Red Christmas, that reminds young readers of the importance of a helping hand.
It's Christmas time at Happy Skies Farm! Tillus the worm, Big Red, Sammy and the rest of the team are excited to celebrate the season. But Casey the farmer is busy working: feeding animals, repairing fences and planning for the year ahead. With so much to do, Casey wonders if she?ll have time to prepare for the holidays. That's when Tillus and the team unite to make this Christmas extra special for their busy friend.
Published by Octane Press, known for their award-winning tractor books, ?Casey & Friends? uses photos of CASE IH equipment in real farming situations with cartoon characters to explain how modern farm equipment works in a factual and fun way. Author Holly Dufek, a seasoned educator and national curriculum writer, joins Paul Nunn, Licensed Artist for Disney and Lucas Film, to help kids make the connection with the farm equipment they see in the countryside and the food on their table.
Casey's Bright Red Christmas is written by Holly Dufek and illustrated by Paul E. Nunn for ages 4-8? and is 32 pages. Casey loves Christmas but it is Christmas Eve and she has been so busy lately that she was unable to get everything ready for the big day. She has to try and get it all done but see seems to be coming down with an...achoo...cold. Tillus and the team come to the rescue just in time so they can still have a great time together! This book is adorable for younger readers and especially those that love farm equipment.
