AUTOMATION is here: Teddy the Tractor and his friends who include Carol the Combine, Dennis the Drill and Sally the Spreader – no sexism here – do their work without the help of a driver in A Beavers book* for children aged three years or more.

Teddy and Co have piercing eyes and work very hard to harvest the crops on the six-field farm and plant the fields for the following year. What the crops are grown for is also made clear in this book where one or two sentences sum up each of the farming activities which are illustrated in black-and-white line drawings. AR

*Teddy the Tractor and his Friends by A Beaver, Pentland Press (£4.99).
