Not yet rated | write a review
Cris Peterson writes with a first-hand appreciation for the circle of life on American farms and clearly presents her topics to young readers. Her recent title for Boyds Mills Press, Century Farm, provides a glimpse into the past and the future of one American family farm. This book was also a winner of the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Award.

Cris's previous books, also beautifully photographed by Alvis Upitis, give children different perspectives on understanding where their food comes from. In Extra Cheese, Please!, she focuses on the process of making cheese, from cows milk to pizza topping. In Harvest Year, she documents the variety of products raised in various regions of our country in a month-to-month format. And Horsepower celebrates the draft horse, one of the main sources of power in the United States less than a century ago.

Cris Peterson, her husband Gary, and their three children--Ben, Matt, and Caroline--grow corn, oats, and hay as well as raise fifty dairy cows on their three-hundred-acre farm in Grantsburg, Wisconsin, which has been in Gary's family since 1877.

"My writing career began when I gave mouth-to-mouth resuscitation to a newborn calf and I knew I had a good story," she says. "The calf lived, and after a dozen rewrites the story sold. Both were named 'Breathless.'"

Born in Minneapolis, Cris earned a bachelor of science degree in education from the University of Minnesota. In addition to writing, farming, and parenting, she reviews children's books in her nationally syndicated column, "Huckleberry Bookshelf," and frequently speaks to school students and farm groups.
