About Winning and Losing - great story!

:
My 5 year old boy and almost 4 year old girl LOVE Tractor Mac!
We have the 'paper' books and are THRILLED to now have them produced by PicPocket Books as bookapps.
These apps really bring the books to life - with real farm animal and tractor sounds, the extra features compliment the stories perfectly.

The sounds are not too loud, so they don't overwhelm the listener. But I do wish the sounds would on work AFTER the text is read - so it is more of a reward for listening to the whole page and does not interrupt the story.

Tractor Mac is actually a real tractor, we have met 'him' at the Bridgewater Fair in Connecticut (great old style country fair that raises money for the local fire department). The Tractor Mac series is truly a healthy wholesome great story that is not commercial or trying to sell you anything - it is filled with wonderful characters, all of whom in their own quiet ways teach children about being a team, working together and welcoming new friends.

All three books released by PicPocket so far are great - the books are narrated by Billy Steers, the author - so they are read just perfectly.

Tractor Mac Arrives - is about how the farm animal greet the new tractor, and eventually all find a way to work together
Tractor Mac Builds a Barn - is about team work
Tractor Mac You're a Winner - is about trying your best, handling disappointment and celebrating accomplishments

But more than anything, they are just GREAT STORIES! The message is not 'forced' it is naturally told through the story, and kids just get it.

In the front of the books, there are detailed labeled illustrations of a tractor and one or two other farm items - this is a great feature for kids who want to learn more.

Tractor Mac You're a Winner is not just about winning, it is about wanting something very much, trying your best, and not necessarily winning... but learning how to lose gracefully and find areas in life that you are a winner (especially by helping others). It also has a great lesson about how versatile engines and tractors are! A tractor and a power belt can be used to solve so many problems!!

Ask your kids what they did today to be a winner!

You really won't regret getting these, and you will probably head towards the Tractor Mac website to find out about the other books in the series and any upcoming appearances at state fairs. My kids can't wait to give Tractor Mac a hug again at The Bridgewater Fair in August!
