How To Be a True Friend Dec 5, 2006
Mulch is a yellow walk-behind mower who shares the garage with his best friend Rider. Rider is a big red sit-down mower who has the honor of mowing the field at the professional baseball stadium. Mulch's great desire is to one day mow the baseball field, but that does not stop him from being proud of his friend. Mulch always shouts encouragement to his good friend each morning as Mr. Corey loads Rider onto a trailer. "Have an awesome day!" Mulch shouts as they drive away.
It's Mulch's job to cut the Corey family lawn. There's not much to do all day, all alone in the garage. He remembers the time he rode on two wheels to avoid hitting a hose and water sprinkler hidden in the deep grass. How proud he was of the job he did that day, and how good it felt when Mr. Corey patted him and said, "Good job Mulch."
At the end of each day, Rider always answered all of Mulch's questions about the field and the players. One day Rider came home sick, he was extra dusty and tired, he coughed and blew blue smoke. Mr. Corey said he had a part missing and Rider would be unable to work for a few days.
The next morning Mr. Corey loaded Mulch onto the trailer. His dream of mowing the baseball field was coming true. As they pulled out of the driveway Rider yelled out. "Go get `em Mulch." This story of friendship and encouragement ends as Mulch finds Rider's lost part while mowing the field.
Mulch the Lawn Mower is recommended for grades 1-4. It is designed as a reading book to introduce youngsters to a full short story. Mulch is a funny, brightly colored book that teaches a positive and determined attitude. He sets an example of how to be a supportive and uplifting friend. Mulch is the winner of the "Mom's Choice Award."
A Great Read for Todays Children Aug 4, 2006
Mulch The Lawnmower by Scott Nelson
Scott Nelson has written a delightful story that introduces young readers to a world of two lawn mowers; Mulch, the small yellow push mower, and Rider, the big, red, riding mower.
The pictures are beautiful vibrant colors that capture your attention as you read through the two mowers adventures and experiences.
It is a story of friendship, courage, and believing in yourself as well as being able to dream about and reach your goals. The story allows the reader to see that no matter what task they are assigned, its okay to be scared as long as they try.
Young readers will be charmed with Mulch and Riders story. It is a great tale that will become a favorite for many who will return to its pages often. A perfect story for todays children. My compliments to Mr. Nelson
Delightful story! Jun 13, 2006
Reviewed by Irene Watson for Reader Views (6/06)
Cute, cute, cute. I still have a smile on my face after reading this delightful story. Not only is the story sweet, it's also an invaluable lesson for a child in K-2nd grade.
Mulch, the lawnmower, (push type) is overshadowed by his counterpart, Rider the ride on lawnmower. Rider's main job is to cut the grass on a professional baseball field. Mulch dreams of some day being able to work on a large job like Rider.
One day Rider becomes "sick" and because of not being able to get parts for several days, Mr. Covey, the owner, has to use Mulch in his place. Of course, as with any sweet story, Mulch does a great job and wins over the baseball team. It also earned him a special place in Mr. Covey's heart and Mulch is given a job mowing the grass along side Rider.
This story has strong messages of determination, positive attitude, reaching goals, and gratefulness. The illustrations are adorable and capture the characters and their feelings. Scott Nelson, both author and illustrator, must be commended on his work. This book would be a keeper for any child and read over and over again.
My two boys love this book! Jun 6, 2006
I have two boys (2-years old and a 4-years old). Every night they usually get three short stories, but they are willing to trade 3 of these stories for the this one longer story book of Mulch the Lawnmower.
They both love lawnmowers as it is, and to hear a story about them is just that much better.
I think they really love the bright colors of the full page illustrations.
No only is the story intertaining, but there are several positive themes in the book as well.
- Try your best - Help your friends out - No job is ever too big to try - Payoffs for hard work - Being a team player
Overall my two boys love the book and want to know when there will be more adventures of Mulch and Rider!
