In our eighth installment of the “Learn to Draw on TCBR” series, Lindsay Ward, creator of Rosie: Stronger than Steel, teaches us how to draw Rosie— a brave tractor who farms for freedom.
Young children, especially boys, eat the Tractor Mac books up and Tractor Mac: Family Reunion will be as easily digested as its predecessors.
Steers introduced the first children’s book that he both wrote and illustrated, Tractor Mac Arrives at the Farm—originally published by Golden Books. He has continued to create and self-publish more children’s books in his Tractor Mac series. We talked to him about the inspiration behind the lovable Tractor Mac and why kids so readily embrace books about “things that go.”
