We love this "Yummy" book here at Born Country!
Here's an excerpt from the publishers, you'll see why we think it's so special. It's vital for our children's education and understanding of where food and fibre comes from to have books like this on the menu for their hungry little minds.
In March 2012 the media reported some alarming results highlighting that children don’t understand where their food and fibre comes from or the significance of farmers. The results came from a survey carried out by the Primary Industries Education Foundation (PIEF) which involved 900 Year 6 and Year 10 students along with their teachers. The survey revealed some concerning statistics including the following:
Three rural women in north west NSW saw a need to educate, believed they could play a considerable role and indeed felt a responsibility to do so and as a result, ‘Yum Yum…Where Does It Come From?’ was developed. The book, targeted at early childhood (babies up to Year 2) is a rhyming tale with illustrations to bring the content to life. It enables children to make a connection between various fresh produce and the animals and plants that produce them. The book further explores the notion of farm produce being fresh and natural and that farmers care very much for their animals and their land.
"Yum Yum... Where Does It Come From?" is a beautifully illustrated and educational soft cover book. Perfect for bed-time!
