2020’s Ag Literacy Book – Order Yours Now!

Tales of a Dairy Godmother: Chuck’s Ice Cream Wish is this year’s children’s book selected for MAEF’s Ag Literacy Program. Through the Ag Literacy Program, literacy volunteers set up a time to visit in a nearby school and read to students in grades K-3. Following the reading of the book, volunteers conduct an activity with the students and share their experiences in agriculture.  The book is then left in the classroom or media center. For more information on how to host the program at your school, please click the link below!
