You might already know— no farms, no food. But if you ask a younger student where their food comes from, they will probably say a grocery store. And if you ask them who grows it — they will probably picture Old MacDonald. Children's books are an excellent opportunity to introduce students to modern agricultural practices and the book "Right This Very Minute" does just that!
