The American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture has released three new books and two new videos to complement its updated My American Farm game, My Little Ag Me. These supporting resources focus on the many careers available in agriculture.
“This new series of My American Farm books does a great job of teaching schoolkids more about agriculture and a variety of ag-related careers—from dairy farmer to plant scientist to ag journalist,” said American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall. “Each book introduces students to ag terms and shows them different types of agriculture and related careers,” he added. The three books are geared toward a fifth-grade audience and are titled “The Vibrant Variety,” “The Artistic Arrangement” and “The Cow Conundrum.” A special code at the end of the books unlocks a secret level of the My Little Ag Me game.
In addition to the books, two videos highlight a host of careers in agriculture ranging from information technology programmer to mechanical engineer.
