Book Review: "It's All About That Beef!"
by Rianna and Sheridan Chaney ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️One of my favorite ways to connect with people who want to learn about agriculture is to volunteer to read in grade school classrooms. Kids love having new people read to them and then once the book is done, they have tons of questions for me.
In addition, the teachers enjoy not having to be "in charge" all the time and a few minutes off in their day can make all the difference! So I have compiled a pretty good list of books about agriculture, specifically raising cattle.
These books by the Chaney Twins are some of my favorites! Now they have a new book--the 7th in a series. If you haven't seen these books, let me introduce you and give you a quick review...
They've come a long way since 2007 when they began their first book "Little Star...Raising our First Calf," not just in their own maturity, but also in the complexity of the story. In the first book, the girls raise an orphaned twin calf by feeding it a bottle. They learn responsibility and what it takes to feed and care for a calf. They name her Star and she grows up to become a mama cow and star in other books in the series.
But in the most recent book, "It's All About That Beef!" the girls help teach the reader about how beef makes it to our plates. There are professional quality photographs on every page and well thought out text to accompany each photo.
These books have received quite a bit of recognition within the agriculture world, but it is still hard to get them widely distributed. So in order to share them with my readers, and help you enjoy them and take them to classrooms to share, I want to give them to you!

I hope you enjoy these great stories of these two gals and what they have accomplished! I look forward to their next three books to complete the 10-book series.
