Nonfiction Monday: The Magic of Milky Way



What an amazing day we had at the Milky Way Farm in Chester Springs, Pa this past weekend. We walked through a corn maize, pet some cows and sheep, picked pumpkins, took a hay ride and topped it off with some ice cream made right on the farm! Even better was this keepsake, The Magic of Milky Way Farm by Carolyn Matthews Eaglehouse. This book takes us through a day in the life of a dairy farmer. A mother and baby cow tour their home while explaining the operations of a modern, computerized dairy farm. The kid friendly illustrations and simple facts about milk machines and production on each page provide an excellent recap of that special trip you just took to the dairy farm, or serve as a wonderful introduction to some of the things that you may see and talk about when visiting a dairy farm. In these hard economic times, it is even more important to support your local farms and educate your children about the importance of them. Visit your local farm and show your support soon! What a great way to spend some quality, family time on a beautiful, autumn day!
