FARM Early Reader Books
These agricultural First Reader books were developed through a variety of partnerships with the Arizona Farm Bureau.
The 5 FARMS Early Reader Books were developed through a partnership between the Arizona Farm Bureau and the University of Arizona Cooperative Extension to foster a love of reading and agriculture at an early age. Every child should learn to read, and every child should know where their food and fiber comes from, A special Thank You to all of Arizona's Farmers, Ranchers, and farm workers for countless hours and dedication to providing us all with safe and nutritious food. A portion of the funding for this First Reader was provided by a National Ag in the Classroom Build-Up Grant and the Arizona Foundation for Agricultural Literacy.
Ranchers Care for Animals and the Land was developed in partnership with the Arizona Farm Bureau and the Arizona Beef Council to highlight the relationship between ranchers, their animals, and the land.
A series of Specialty Crop First Readers was developed with funding from an Arizona Specialty Crop Grant. These books are level readers to engage both early and more experienced readers. Farmers Grow Specialty Crops is the first of the Series that introduces students to the many Specialty Crops. What Makes Crops Special is the 2nd book in the Series and provides a more expanded introduction to Specialty Crops. The 3rd book in the Series, Arizona Specialty Crops, is a great Reader for those more advanced kiddos. This series is also available in Spanish!
