Tony Tractor is bought brand new and shiny from a tractor factory, and gets to work on a large farm for many years. Tony Tractor loves working hard on the farm plowing fields and pulling hay wagons.

Then one day Tony Tractor doesn’t go out into the fields to work and realizes that the farm is sold to another farmer who raises cattle. Tony Tractor is then moved out of the barn to make room for the cattle and put out in a field, where he is no longer used. Over time, Tony begins to rust and gets very rusty and dirty which makes him sad.

A CHILD'S LIFE IN TREES
by Deanna Scelzo, illustrated by Dan Smith
A girl grows up in a rural setting in Michigan where she is surrounded by trees. They block her view from the world she longs to see and feels she is missing out on all that is going on beyond them. She retreats to her little world that is close and unforbidden. Escaping to a place near, but still amidst those trees she resents and unbeknownst to her, finds a different kind of elusiveness. It lends itself to her adolescence in a way that is so silent and unpretentious that it almost goes unnoticed season after season. One day, long after her childhood is gone, she realizes what those trees gave her.
