In this charming and nostalgia-filled companion to the best-selling picture book Grandpa’s Tractor, a grandmother shares her fond memories of farm life.
Grandma Ginny and Timmy take a trip to visit the site of the family farm, where the old house and some rickety buildings still stand. Timmy had visited with Grandpa before and learned all about his tractor, but Grandma has her own stories to tell of planting the fields, harvesting the crops, and feeding the animals. Guided by Grandma’s farm diary and her fond memories, Timmy and Grandma tour the land and talk about what life was like back then. This heartwarming intergenerational story is perfect for grandparents to share with their grandchildren, and for those looking for a story to share about simpler times.
