Preschool children love to see the real farm action of Summertime in this 40 min film introduced by their favourite farm character, Tractor Ted.
Summer is a very busy season in the countryside and this film captures all the action at the farm in real life. The story of summer involves Tractor Ted visiting the favourite of all farm machines, the Combine Harvester. He sees how the big reel at the front feeds the crop onto the cutters and how the grain fills the big tank at the back. Then more machines arrive to collect the grain as it flows out of the long spout. The straw is then scooped up by a really big baler to use for the cows bedding in the wintertime. Another important summer job is the sheep shearing and Tractor Ted is there to explain what the shearers are doing, how the fleece makes wool and why the sheep need to lose that woolly coat to stay cool and healthy. One of the top tunes of any Ted DVD accompanies the visit to see the huge excavator digging a new area. 'I am an Excavator' is one of the top children's nursery rhyme known across the Tractor Ted world! A film packed with all the fun and discovery typical of Tractor Ted DVDs. A great way for youngsters to understand the cycles of life and the seasons. One of four Tractor Ted Seasons DVDs. Accompanying 32 page photographic book also available.
