Grandpa's Tractor / by Michael Garland
Title: Grandpa's Tractor
Concepts: economic development, natural resources, human resources, capital resources
Review: Grandpa Joe and Timmy had to drive through a large housing development in order to reach their destination: the remains of an old barn and farmhouse where Grandpa used to live when he was Timmy's age. At some point the family had decided to sell off their farmland to developers, but Grandpa still had fond memories of growing up on the farm and helping his father with the work. When Timmy saw the old rusty tractor hiding in the weeds, he had little trouble imagining Grandpa as a little boy sitting on that tractor and helping with the plowing, planting, and harvesting.
