Tractor Mac : Farmers' Market by Billy Steers - OPTIONAL

Tractor Mac : Farmers' Market by Billy Steers, PICTURE BOOK  Farrar Straus Giroux (Macmillan), 2009 (1st Paperback edition 2018). $6.



When the farm animals find that their food is missing, they discover that Pete and Paul (the pigs) got into the pantry. The next day the farmer takes them to the farmers market (thankfully not to sell them) and they learn about all the healthy fresh foods. 

Pigs eat anything - so do goats, so learning about healthy foods? The animals eat what you feed them. The illustrations are fun, and I like the message to eat healthy foods. Inside the front cover is a picture of Farmer Bill and what foods are good for what parts of him. There's a bunch of stickers in the front and back, but nothing to stick them to in the book. Also includes recipes for Sautéed Kale and Basil Pesto (hmm, is this book for kids or adults?)
