Are you still wondering what book to buy for your kids this Christmas? Have you been thinking of buying something that is fun but also educational? Have you looked for an interesting book on basic agriculture that is not boring – or simplistic? If this is you, then Holly Dufek is the author to look for.

A seasoned educator, Dufek has succeeded in putting together a comprehensive book that addresses farming practices, agricultural tools as well as the seasonal work schedule. But this is not a boring book that makes your youngster’s eyes glaze over. Nor is it so simplistic that your kindergartener cannot wait to get off the couch.

No! A Year on the Farm is engaging and written with in inquisitive child’s willingness to learn and discover in mind. The book contains just enough information to make it interesting. It also highlights new words so that youngsters learn the agricultural lingo. This is the type of book that allows for new discoveries with every reading, so be prepared to read it frequently to your child. Ideal for the younger grade schooler, the book contains some fun facts that allow even parents to learn a thing or two.

If you don’t believe me, answer me this: can a pig look up at the sky? Well? If you do not know the answer to this question, you have not read the book. As you know, children love learning these quirky little facts, and the book cleverly uses the makeup of kids” minds to help them learn new words, remember them and then use them in conversation.

As you can tell, I highly recommend this book and believe that it would also make a great staple in elementary school libraries. But did you know that Casey & Friends will be making other appearances, too? Already there are scheduled release dates for books dealing with combines, big tractors and planters as well as cultivators. This is a series of books that is certain to combine education with fun.
