ABOUT THE BOOKS:
A Year on the Farm with Casey & Friends (January) - introduces children to the world of modern farming by teaching them about the different jobs a farmer does each season.

Learn how farming involves planning for the year, reacting to the weather, and working as a team.
Big Tractors with Casey & Friends (April) - shows how the biggest, most powerful tractors handle the demanding jobs of pulling and powering on the farm.

Learn about the science of farming and discover how advanced technology makes Big Red and Sammy special.
Combines with Casey & Friends (June) - explains the step-by-step processes used to harvest crops by the most complex machines on the farm. Follow Cody and Kellie—the combines of Happy Skies Farm—as they do the work of three machines: gathering, separating, and unloading grain and corn.
Planters & Cultivators with Casey & Friends (September) - features the specialized farm equipment used to cultivate, plant and spray crops. Learn how Tammi the Tiller, Evan the Early Riser Planter and Peter the Patriot Sprayer work together to make this year’s crop bigger than ever.
