The first book in the series is called Milk Comes from a Cow?
Grandma takes Kailey to Farmer George's farm where she gets to see real black and white milk cows called Holsteins. She learns how much they eat and drink and how farmers get the milk from the cow to the grocery store.
Yunk even answers the age old question, "Does chocolate milk come from brown cows?"
I love the real pictures of dairy cows in bright vivid colors. My boys love the accurate information that they can read about farms different than ours.
These books can be ordered on the KFB website. The staff at Kansas Farm Bureau has worked hard to have great resources to go along with the books. There are free lesson plans for teachers and parents as well as videos and fact sheets on the above web page.
Just a few weeks ago I found that they released a new app for tablets and phones called Milk comes from a Cow. Search Kansas Farm Bureau and you should find it.
