Product Description

"Forgotten God for kids".  A timeless parable for children from best-selling author Francis Chan.

The villagers loved the big, red tractor. It helped them grow enough food to get them through the year. But it was hard to use, and it didn’t work very well. Even with everyone helping to push and pull the tractor, they couldn’t get much done. Everyone believed that was just how things were. That is, until Farmer Dave discovered a long-lost book in a dusty attic. Could it really change everything? Farmer Dave thinks so. But the other villagers aren’t so sure.

The Big Red Tractor and His Little Village is a contemporary parable sharing a timeless truth: God has a special purpose for you and you can fulfill it through the help of his Spirit. It’s a powerful lesson perfectly told for little hearts.

This book really shows the importance of the Bible and the Holy Spirit.

"Did you know that you are like the big red tractor? God made you, and He knows just how you work best. He wrote a book full of truth that you can read to help you know how to live too. The Bible tells us that if we try to do thing on our own, we won''t accomplish much. But if we trust in Jesus, God gives us the Holy Spirit so we''ll have a new power: the power to love others and tell them about God"

In the story people push a tractor to plow their fields and they are only able to make enough food for their village. It takes a very long time. Then a farmer finds an instruction manual to fix the tractor to run. He reads it, but no one believes him. The farmer fixes the tractor and they are able to make enough food to share with villages in need. They become the most generous village any where. They travel around telling people their secret to making enough food.

I really enjoyed it. It is an excellent resource.

We like Francis Chan''s books for adults, thrilled he writes for children, too.

So uninteresting and silly that I can''t hold the interest of any of my grandchildren. Wasted my money here. Toward the end it becomes a lesson in religion of which there is nothing in the selling points that tell you this. Should have returned it but put it back as no one wanted to read it and forgot all about it, that is how memorable this book is.

Neat parallel to the Bible being our instruction manual like the tractor in the story. Would of like a different illustrations with less dark color. Didn’t set mood well but story is good.

This book is special in its ability to present a complex Biblical concept in a whimsical and understandable way for even young children. Francis Chan has demonstrated a unique ability to present challenging information in a comprehensive fashion for adults in his nonfiction books and he does the same for children with this book. There are several parallels between this book and Forgotten God.

My three year old nephew went nuts over this book. He loves tractors and now when he sees me, he wants to read this book. I think I will have to purchase another copy so we can keep one at Grandma''s house as well as his house. He can''t read yet, and I don''t think he really understands it, but he loves it and I think one day it will make sense to him. I think this book would also be appropriate for older kids who can read it themselves.

As far as the story goes, there is a group of villagers who own this big red tractor. In order to plow the fields, they all work together to push it. It takes them most of the year to do the plowing. Then, one of the villagers finds the manual to the tractor and fixes the tractor so it will run on its own. The other villagers think he''s crazy at first, but when he makes the tractor work on its own and plows the field in a day, they believe him. It goes on to explain that we need the bible to know how to live our lives and that God has a plan for us. I think it''s a great way to encourage young kids, in particular, boys who are obsessed with tractors, to learn about God.

Love the story, pictures and overall message. We have another Francis Chan kids book - Halfway Herbert and love that one. I think this will also become a favorite.

A Big Truth simplified

I really love how this book breaks down what seems a complex concept into something so simple it can be readily understood.
(edited to add) This needs to be made into a board book. My toddler LOVES the "Putt Putt BOOM" book!

I was blown away by Chan''s message "Lukewarm and Lovin'' It" and so I wanted to buy both of his books geared towards adults, which I did. Then I saw he did a couple of children''s books, which I snapped up for my little lambs. The book is great. My children love it. The illustrations are fun and colourful. The best part though is the strong message. I feel this is a message for the parents about the need to read the Bible for guidance and direction in our lives as well as the little ones. This is a good quality, hardback book that will last years if looked after well.
