In a picture-book format, the Canada at Work series introduces young children to the people, machines and environmental concerns involved in farming. It features a year-round, in-depth look at two kinds of agriculture --- cattle ranching and vegetable farming. Canadian in every detail, this book will help kids appreciate the work involved in bringing food to their homes.
Children will come away from the book with a realistic understanding of what it is like to be employed in this occupation. Those who live in communities founded on farming will probably appreciate the fact that this work is presented in an accurate, serious manner. Kids who live in cities will realize that many Canadian still find a livelihood in industries based on natural resources.
