The Mississippi Farm Bureau Federation’s State Women’s Leadership Committee has selected their 2020 Book of the Year. Dirt, written by Steve Tomecek and illustrated by Nancy Woodman, is a children’s book published by National Geographic Kids. It’s intended to teach children about soil through fun and colorful illustrations. This book is perfect for Earth Day (April 22) celebrations, especially since 2020 marks the holiday’s 50th anniversary. The paperback book also includes an educator guide, with both selling for $6. To order a copy, contact your local Farm Bureau office or Ag in the Classroom Program Assistant Pam Jones at (601) 977-4854 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
