We are excited to announce the American Farm Bureau Foundation For Agriculture released the 2021 book of the year, “Tales of the Dairy Godmother: Chuck’s Ice Cream Wish.” The book of the year was presented at the 2021 American Farm Bureau Federation virtual convention.
“Tales of the Dairy Godmother: Chuck’s Ice Cream Wish” was written by Viola Butler. The story features a little boy named Chuck who wishes for all the ice cream he can eat prompting his “Dairy Godmother” to show up to grant his wish with a dairy farm. Chuck gets a firsthand look at all the hard work and care that goes into producing his favorite treat.
Each year the American Farm Bureau Foundation For Agriculture picks a book that accurately covers agricultural topics. Book of the year selections are educational, help to create positive public perceptions about agriculture and inspire readers to learn more.
The Nevada Farm Bureau has purchased the Book of the year for Ag literacy events as well as the educational guide. These books would be a great addition for county Farm Bureau events. The educational guide is great resource to connect the book to where food comes from. The eight lessons featured in the educational guide cover literacy, science and math in a fun way.
In addition to the book of the year we also have Ag mags available in beef, dairy, corn, bees, pigs, innovation, careers, energy, sheep, pork and specialty crops. Ag mags are a great resource for county Farm Bureau to use in Ag in the classroom, or other events held throughout the county.
If you are interested in hosting an Ag literacy event in your county and would a copy of the book, or any Ag mags please contact Brittney Money at, firstname.lastname@example.org
