Casey’s Bright Red Christmas - Children's Book Review and Giveaway

I received book for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
It’s Christmas time at Happy Skies Farm! Tillus the worm, Big Red, Sammy and the rest of the team are excited to celebrate the season. But Casey the farmer is busy working: feeding animals, repairing fences and planning for the year ahead. With so much to do, Casey wonders if she’ll have time to prepare for the holidays. That’s when Tillus and the team unite to make this Christmas extra special for their busy friend.

Published by Octane Press, known for their award-winning tractor books, “Casey & Friends” uses photos of CASE IH equipment in real farming situations with cartoon characters to explain how modern farm equipment works in a factual and fun way. Author Holly Dufek, a seasoned educator and national curriculum writer, joins Paul Nunn, Licensed Artist for Disney and Lucas Film, to help kids make the connection with the farm equipment they see in the countryside and the food on their table.

Casey's Bright Red Christmas tells of a girl named Casey who is so busy that she doesn't have time to prepare for Christmas.  She then becomes ill and doesn't feel up to par.  Casey isn't sure how she'll get everything done in time for Christmas.  The machinery, illustrated with some humanlike characteristics, decides to kick in and help, making cookies and wrapping presents.  Casey learns that her friends are there for her in time of need, and ends up having a wonderful Christmas.
 
I live in an area where farm machinery is a staple.  Casey equipment can commonly be seen in fields and farms.  If you know a child who is familiar with the Casey brand or who is interested in farm apparatus, then the "Casey & Friends" books would make a great holiday gift for them.  The book is hardcover and full of rich illustrations.
 
Win It!
 
One person will win Casey's Bright Red Christmas children's book.
