Description

Farming takes a year-round look at two kinds of agriculture --- cattle ranching and vegetable farming. This engaging picture book uses a combination of fact and fiction to introduce young children to the people, machines and environmental concerns involved in an important resource-based industry.

The America at Work series fills a need for primary-level information on natural resources, and Farming helps children appreciate the work involved in bringing food products to their homes.
