For the 2020 Farm-tastic Book Program, we have chosen the book “It's Milking Timer” by Phyllis Alsdurf, Illustration by Steve Johnson & Lou Fancher.
As the sun sets over the fields, a little girl and her father begin the evening milking. They work side by side, fanning out beds of straw, bringing in the cows, and hooking up the milkers.
Soon they've filled milk can after milk can for the creamery truck that will arrive in the morning. The fresh dairy product isn't just for them—other families will buy their milk, butter, and cheese at stores and farmers' markets near and far, connecting the little girl's farm to the world beyond.
Due to limited availability, only one order will be placed for the book. All orders will be filled on a first come basis. Orders will be accepted until all books are sold. Educator Guides and Ag Mags are not available. The price for this book will be $11.00.
What is The FARMtastic Book Program?
The FARM-tastic Book Program was started by the PA State Women’s Leadership Committee in 2012 to promote agricultural literacy in the public libraries and elementary school libraries within Pennsylvania. The State Women’s Leadership Committee is encouraging the counties to be involved again this year in the FARM-tastic Book Program.
Our FARM-tastic Book Program generates excitement among students of all ages by offering them the opportunity to learn about agriculture through the pages of books. The State Women’s Leadership Committee encourages you to get involved in sharing the agricultural story this year in your county through the FARM-tastic Book Program.
