    Eleven-year-old Madison Mae and her younger brother, Albert, want to help save the family farm during troubled times. When a mysterious Magical Hat Shop appears by their grandpa’s red tractor mailbox, the children meet Tilda Pinkerton who presents them with one-of-a-kind hats, causing new ideas and talents to suddenly burst forth. As a flood of harm comes rushing towards the farm, Tilda Pinkerton teaches the children how they can accomplish much more than anyone ever imagined.
    Increase your child’s vocabulary, self esteem and awareness of social issues, while they enjoy a great story!  Tilda Pinkeron’s Magical Hats does it all. Grades K1-4.

    My take on this book:
    It isn't often that I review young children's books on my blog but once in a while I stumble upon such a good childrens book that I just have to share. Well with "By the Red Tractor Mailbox"book one in the Tilda Pinkerton 's Magical Hats I found such a delightful book that is certainly going to capture your childs imagination and since it's a chapter book it's going to make them feel like there reading a "big person" book!  Not only are they going to get to go on an amazing adventure in the pages of the story they are also going to learn plenty of new words along the way. The neat thing is if they aren't sure of the words they learn there is a handy glossary for them to learn just what they mean. What a wonderful way to build your youngsters vocabulary.
    The story revolves around Madison and her younger brother Albert who get to spend the summer on their grandparents farm. Things aren't going so well on the farm though and there is a chance that their grandparents might lose it. Madison and Albert and a few friends come up with an idea to save the farm but will it work!
    I loved the colorful cover of this book, but what made it a real winner for me was the delightful story I found inside. Written in a clever way to allow the reader to learn new words while getting caught up in the magic of the story. A great chapter book where the illustrations just begged to be colored. A delightful way to nurture the love of reading in youngsters!
