Kansas Farm Bureau released its sixth book in the Kailey’s Ag Adventures children’s book series. Kailey’s Pig ‘Tales’ follows Kailey and her cousins as they learn about pig farming from Farmer Rich.
Kansas Farm Bureau’s retired CEO and former educator, Dan Yunk, has continued writing the series that began after granddaughter Kailey was fascinated about what she learned on a farm tour with Yunk.
“We’ve covered a lot of ground in the Kailey series,” Yunk says. “Just like we’ve done with every book, we try to share the story of agriculture in a fun, educational and relatable way.”
All of the Kailey books are available online at http://store.kfb.org/ along with free lesson and parent plans at www.kfb.org/ageducation.
“Each of us is connected to agriculture,” Holly Higgins, KFB’s director of ag education and safety, says. “We don’t all work on a farm, but we all enjoy the food that’s produced from our Kansas farmers and ranchers.”
She explains the series fills a gap in children’s book, and the lesson plans are developed with state teaching standards.
“These books make great Christmas gifts for both the young and old,” Higgins says. “You’re never too old to learn about the industry that feeds us.”
