We received the following post from Coast Range Publishing with the following message and link to their book The Cow-Pie Chronicles. I read several reviews of the book and it sounds like something we will purchase to share with our grandchildren and other farming relatives & friends! I was so impressed to see that copies were donated to St. Jude's and other hospitals at Christmas time.

"I wrote this book based on my life on a farm as a child 60 years ago thinking parents would buy it for their children to learn about a different way of life. To my surprise, many parents bought it for their parents to read and remember their own experiences on farms as children. It has many fine reviews. This is one example by Sandra K. Stiles

This review is from: The Cow-Pie Chronicles (Paperback)

Growing up on a farm I could relate to so much of this. It brought back fond memories. On a farm you have to use your imagination to play. I also remember when my city cousins would visit how much fun they had. I couldn’t wait to spend the night in town with them. It seemed like there was so much more to do. I even recall saying I would move to the city when I grew up. Then like Tim and his family we moved away from the farm. The difference is we sold our farm to move to Florida. We had chores just like Time and Dana. We had accidents that required stitches from doing stupid things or things we weren’t supposed to do. Dana easily adapts to life in the city as did all of my siblings. I like Tim had a hard time adjusting and look forward to one day when my husband and I can move back to a rural area. We currently live in the city because my elderly mother lives with us. She has recently started to reminisce about “the good old days on the farm”. I think kids who have never lived on or been to a farm will enjoy this and learn a lot. I also believe that children/adults who grew up on a farm will enjoy and be able to relate to this story. I, like Tim, can look back on my life and see how living on a farm shaped me and my work ethic. This is a wonderful book and I look forward to reading so much more by this author, and recommending the book to everyone."

Ark City FFA members traveled to Coffeyville last Wednesday to learn more about the Ag Communications CDE. They participated in a press conference about Kansas Agriculture and then were required to make press releases, magazine spreads and record radio broadcasts. It was a fun event!
