This book is designed to support poor readers by giving them overtly adult material but where the language has been calculated using a reading age scale on a computer program. Read about Ferguson's innovative engineering invention of the three-point hitch and how it became an international standard for tractors and still remains so today. This was engineering genius at its best. So much so that Henry Ford Senior ( of Ford cars) placed Harry Ferguson alongside the Wright Brothers ( flight), Edison (the light bulb) and Bell (the telephone), it really was that important with 85% of the world's tractors basing their engineering on his unique ideas. We also read about how the little Grey Fergie saved a town from a disaster and we read of the Scandinavian children's film franchise `Little Grey Fergie'. The material in this book should be accessible to an year 8 student and as such should be ideal reading material for the vast majority of students in schools and F.E. colleges. This book is in a series on old technology and is specifically designed to develop reading in teenage males. We were asked by a Midlands College to provide something that encouraged young males to read, since they were literally not reading anything. Since many of them will be weak readers, the book also comes with an audio recording on a disc. The student can then, if they need to, listen to the audio as they read. This will be of interest to schools, colleges and academies where there are reluctant readers.
