The Georgia Peanut Commission is proud to present “A Home Run For Peanuts!" Meet Jake, and his loyal farm dog, Max! They live on a Georgia peanut farm and are excited to show you around! Grab a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and let's explore the farm through the changing seasons. Along the way, we will discover how farmers take care of their farm machinery, plant the seeds, tend to the crop, harvest the peanuts and enjoy the fruits of their labor! Plus, we'll see how Jake applies lessons learned on the farm into other areas of his life — studying for tests at school, overcoming obstacles and practicing his baseball swing for the big game! Written by author Amanda Radke with a strong focus on agricultural accuracy and promoting literacy about farm production, teachers and parents will appreciate the built-in educational component of this story, which also includes a glossary of farm terms and a tasty peanut recipe for kids to enjoy. Young readers will enjoy the vibrant illustrations painted by artist Michelle Weber, which truly brings the story to life and makes for a memorable, legacy book to have on your shelf for generations to come! Fall in love with these playful characters as they work on the farm, go to school and play ball! This is a fun and educational read geared for second and third grade reading levels, but this book can be enjoyed by children of all ages! Welcome to the Georgia peanut farm! We are happy to have you here!
