Synopsis

Bouncing blueberries, eager ewes, and giggling geese!
 
Join this lively bunch on an alphabetical tour of today’s farm. With families and schools thinking more than ever about fresh, healthful choices for the table, kids want to know about the foods they see and eat every day: Where does it come from? How is it grown? What’s the difference between a fruit and a veggie? Why don’t chickens have teeth?
 
This entertaining survey of modern farming provides a wealth of farm facts and farm lore, including:
 
-Why some egg yolks are deep orange and others pale yellow
-Which kind of tomato is used to make ketchup
-What butterflies, hummingbirds, bats, and bees all have in common
-Why farmers love ladybugs
-Why sheep smell with their feet
 
Of course there are far more than 26 reasons to love the farm. What are yours?
