Book of the Year named

Nov. 8, 2012 | 0 comments

"How Did That Get Into My Lunchbox? The Story of Food" by Chris Butterworth has been chosen as the 2013 Book of the Year by the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation's Ag in the Classroom program.

The book focuses on how food is grown, produced, processed and transported from farms to tables.

Farm Bureau members and volunteers utilize the Ag in the Classroom book program to educate Wisconsin youth about where their food comes from and the importance of agriculture in their lives.

The book shows young readers how each ingredient made its journey into their lunchbox. Illustrations, by Lucia Gaggiotti, highlight many aspects of farming and include information on food safety and nutrition.

Butterworth, a native of England, is the author of more than 70 nonfiction books for children, covering a diverse range of issues.

In the book, Butterworth shows her enthusiasm for food and for instilling in young readers an appreciation for our food's journey.

The book has received numerous accolades including the being named the American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture's Book of the Year.

This year's selection corresponds with Ag in the Classroom's essay contest topic of "Wisconsin farms help me eat a healthy lunch by …"

The book and essay topic will educate youth about the soil's connection to growing crops and feeding humans and animals.

Copies of "How Did That Get In My Lunchbox?", along with other past Books of the Year are available from the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Foundation for $15 per copy plus shipping.

Order forms are available at wisagclassroom.org. Activity guides developed for the book accompany all orders.
