Let's go on a tractor by Rosalyn Albert

Illus. by Natalia Moore. Let's go series. New Frontier, 2020. ISBN: 9781912858262. 20pp. board book.
Let's go on a tractor is a short rhyming board book aimed at toddlers. It has a simple rhyme to follow and bright illustrations that will capture the eye of any young reader. The book is full of concepts related to a farm such as the tractor, animals (and their noises), growing crops, hay, getting muddy and then getting clean!
This would be a great book for both children who know about farms as they would no doubt delight in finding and naming all the things they know about but also introducing a wide array of things to a much younger child.
This book is just one from the Let's Go! series which features a rocket, ferry and train. These books also feature the same six characters which adds another element of connection for the reader.
These board books are also nice and sturdy so would easily stand up to the often rough handling they can get from a toddler.
It could also tolerate a gentle wipe over if needed.
Overall a good book for a toddler's collection, with nice pictures and both interesting and relevant concepts.
