Modern Farms is a short educational picture book meant to teach children the importance of farming and how modern farms produce the food we need to sustain ourselves. Written by Jackie Nix and complemented with some delightful illustrations by Karen Light, Modern Farms is a must-read for kids. The engaging picture book showcases how, nowadays, we use chemistry to grow our crops instead of using a rake or a hoe. The milk that we drink comes from the dairy cows living on farms. Vegetables like tomatoes, spinach, beans, broccoli, and many more all come from farms, as do the chickens that lay the eggs for us to eat. Combines harvest corn that feeds both animals and humans. The strawberries in your salad or shake come from farms, as do the potatoes in your French fries!
With growing advancements in technology and the increasing obsession with social media amongst kids, it's vital that we teach the next generation the fundamentals of farming and encourage those who show any interest in it. Modern Farms does that and much more. Author Jackie Nix writes in an easily accessible style that is bound to reach kids and teach them valuable lessons on how farming provides us with all the nourishment we need to survive and how modern farms function in general. The illustrations by Karen Light bring a bit of color to the proceedings and make the story all the more fun to read. Modern Farms is a delightful read meant to encourage future potential farmers to take up farming.
