Children’s Corner: Casey’s Bright Red Christmas

9 Dec

UnknownIt’s Christmas time at Happy Skies Farm! Tillus the worm, Big Red, Sammy and the rest of the team are excited to celebrate the season. But Casey the farmer is busy working: feeding animals, repairing fences and planning for the year ahead. With so much to do, Casey wonders if she’ll have time to prepare for the holidays. That’s when Tillus and the team unite to make this Christmas extra special for their busy friend.


B16Lli+-wHS._UX250_Holly Dufek began writing as an educational curriculum specialist, and eventually branched out as a freelance copywriter. In 2013, Case IH Agriculture approached her to help develop and write a new children’s book series about modern farming. The first book in the Casey & Friends series, A Year on the Farm, was released in 2014 – becoming her first published children’s book. Since then, the Casey & Friends series has expanded to include Big Tractors, Combines, Casey’s Bright Red Christmas, and Planters & Cultivators – with additional titles in the works.

Holly lives in Wisconsin with her husband, three children and canine writing companion, Olive.


My Impressions:

Every day is busy on a farm, including Christmas Eve. Add to the normal chores of taking care of livestock, repairs and planning, Christmas decorating and celebrating make for a busy time. In Casey’s Bright Red Christmas, Happy Skies Farm is almost ready for Christmas, but Casey is feeling under the weather. Her farm machine friends and Tillus her right hand man put together a celebration while Casey rests. If you have a child aged 4-8 who loves trucks and tractors, this book is perfect. Farm life is revealed through colorful illustrations as everyone joins in to surprise Casey. Pair this book with a toy tractor and you have a present sure to please!


Audience: children ages 4 – 8.
