During a time when consumers are more curious than ever about where their food comes from, a new children’s book looks to answer some of those questions, particularly about dairy farming. 

“Tales of the Dairy Godmother: Chuck’s Ice Cream Wish,” is now available from Feeding Minds Press, the American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture’s publishing venture. 

“Chuck’s Ice Cream Wish” is a delightful and educational story that we hope will engage young readers and spark curiosity about where their food comes from,” says Daniel Meloy, executive director of the Foundation. “That’s our goal with every resource the Foundation provides, and we’re excited to add this story to the growing library of books that tell the story of modern agriculture.” 

In this “dairy-tale,” a boy named Chuck wishes for all the ice cream he can eat, prompting his “Dairy Godmother” to show up to grant his wish with a dairy farm, where he gets a firsthand look at all the hard work and care that goes into producing his favorite treat. 

Just like youngsters, adult readers can also learn more about the real work of a dairy farm. 

The book is available directly from Feeding Minds Press, as well as Amazon and Barnes and Noble online.
