FARM-Tastic County Book Program
The State Women's Leadership Committee has chosen "The Beeman" a book by Laurie Krebs for the 2014 FARM-tastic Book Program. This is the 3rd year of the FARM-tastic Book Program and the Women's Leadership Committee is a great advocate for agriculture literacy. "The Beeman" will introduce honeybees to students (K-2). The book describes how bee keepers care for their bees, the different kinds of bees, and how bees help us pollinate. Also, the story covers how bees make honey for us to enjoy. The FARM-tastic Book Program generates excitement among students in public libraries and elementary school libraries. This gives children the opportunity to learn about different aspects of agriculture.
