Meet Presley – a farm girl who narrates the busy life of a modern, working corn farm in this fun and informative picture book about a family growing one of the top crops of American agriculture

There's a lot of jobs to do on the family farm! Presley and her farm family work on planting corn, watching for pests, monitoring rain fall so plants get the right amount of water, harvesting the corn, exploring how corn is used in many products, and learning how to be more sustainable farmers.

My Family's Corn Farm is a picture book that includes the life cycle of the corn plant, parts of the corn plant, what a corn plant needs to grow, different types of corn and their uses, how farmers work to prevent erosion with cover crops, and how farmers are continuously learning how to be better stewards of the land. The book also showcases farm vehicles and technology such as a tractor, combine, grain bin, and planter. Readers also see how corn can be used for many types of products from ethanol to corn chips, corn syrup, corn starch and more.

Easy to read glossary defines the following: acre, bushel, combine, crops, ethanol, farmer, feed, fuel, harvest, kernel, livestock and nutrients.

My Family's Corn Farm is a great way to teach about plant life cycles, farm families, and American agriculture.
