'Tractor Mac in the Classroom'

Billy Steers is the author of the popular children’s book series, Tractor Mac, about a big red tractor and his adventures on Stony Meadow Farm. Using a large drawing box, Billy’s visual presentation combines his talents as an author and illustrator with his knowledge of agriculture and family farms. He discusses the book creation process and how the stories and the artwork evolve and allows time for questions and answers at the end. His books have an educational component with detailed diagrams of farm machinery and subjects. The stories each have a lesson such as friendship, patience, and cooperation.
