Take a trip to the farm with Tractor Mac! In this installment of the beloved series, Mac is not feeling well and he must go visit the tractor doctor. Mac is worried, but his animal friends send him well wishes and positivity for a quick fix and recovery. Mac needs some new parts and a tune-up, and soon he is better than new and ready to get back to work at Stony Meadow Farm. Mac is delighted to leave Dr. Lou behind and rejoin his friends and Farmer Bill on the farm.

The Tractor Mac series never disappoints. Toddlers, preschoolers, and even young elementary-aged children will enjoy this farm tale. Tractor Mac is such a likeable character, and it is always interesting to read about his newest adventure. This particular book also does a great job of explaining a little bit of information about tractor repair and specific tractor parts. There are also diagrams included on the front and back cover that provide a visual of a tractor's working mechanisms. As an added bonus, there are two pages of stickers included with this book for some extra fun. Children will continuously reach for this adorably illustrated book during story time.
