Let's learn some farming, construction, and groundskeeping words with John Deere! This informative book contains more than 100 words to spark curious young minds — all inspired by the machines created by John Deere and their mission of connecting children to the land, each other, and the world around them. The scenes help give the words context, which enriches learning. These aren't your typical "first" words, but ones that encourage talking, thinking, and reading! And don't forget to read the fun facts at the bottom of each page; reading them aloud will help build the vocabulary of your child. At the end of the book, play a looking and thinking game together. Search back through the pages to find your favorite John Deere machines, from tractors and dump trucks to seedboxes and crawler dozers!

Cottage Door Press is an independent publisher of high-quality children’s books. Our books are designed to spark curiosity in the littlest readers and fan the flames of lifelong learning. We understand children deserve our respect. That's why we always select artwork and stories that encourage caregivers to "read up" to their little ones––exploring interests together, learning together, and giving their young minds room to grow.
We also believe in creating stories that reflect the boundless possibilities of all children. We hope to create books that inspire little ones to connect, encourage them to dream, give them cause to celebrate, and allow them to see themselves beautifully reflected in the stories they read.
To bring these beautiful stories to life, our diverse and talented staff collaborates with authors and illustrators from all backgrounds and nationalities. We have also partnered with multicultural brands and literacy organizations to make sure our books reflect and reach as many little ones as possible.
