WASHINGTON — Families, educators and anyone wanting to follow in the footsteps of farmers and ranchers can now pull on their boots for another exciting agricultural adventure with the latest publication from Feeding Minds Press, the American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture’s publishing venture. “Farm Boots” tells the story of several farm families as they work and play throughout the year, in boots for every kind of weather and activity.
Joyous and delightful, “Farm Boots” depicts a wide variety of agricultural settings in all four seasons. The book is a celebration of footwear, fun and life on and off the farm, and brought to you by the award-winning writer and illustrator of “Right This Very Minute,” Lisl H. Detlefsen and Renée Kurilla.
“Many of us don’t think about how our footwear helps us prepare to brave the elements each day. But farmers and ranchers do,” said Foundation for Agriculture Executive Director Daniel Meloy. “Feeding Minds Press is excited to tell the story of agriculture through the lens of something we can all relate to, our shoes. Kids may even learn about some unexpected places farm boots could take them.”
“Farm Boots” joins an ever-expanding list of titles from Feeding Minds Press, including “Right This Very Minute,” published in January 2019, and “ I LOVE Strawberries,” a Good Housekeeping 2022 Best Kids’ Book Award Winner.
Feeding Minds Press also offers several free printable books that focus on careers in agriculture. All Feeding Minds Press publications are available for purchase directly from Feeding Minds Press, as well as on Amazon and Barnes & Noble online.
Educational resources for “Farm Boots,” including an educator’s guide, will be available soon.
