The American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture announced today that ‘I LOVE Strawberries’ was named as a winner in the inaugural 2022 Good Housekeeping’s Best Kids' Book Awards. The full list of awards can be found on https://www.goodhousekeeping.com/good-housekeeping-kids-book-awards-2022/and select winners are also featured in the November 2022 print issue of Good Housekeeping, which hit newsstands October 25th.

“The Foundation and our publishing team at Feeding Minds Press are honored by this award,” Foundation Executive Director Daniel Meloy said. “We are committed to inspiring learners of all ages to discover where their food comes from—whether that be from a farm across the country, down the road, or in your own backyard.”

Written by Shannon Anderson and illustrated by Jaclyn Sinquett, “I LOVE Strawberries,” follows Jolie and her faithful rabbit Munchy as together they find out just how delicious, rewarding, and complicated it can be to grow your own food. Through Jolie’s scrapbook-style journal entries, young readers will learn how strawberries grow, what pests to look out for in a garden, why ladybugs are helpful, and much more.

“I LOVE Strawberries,” is the fifth printed title from Feeding Minds Press, which published “Right This Very Minute” in January 2019, “Chuck’s Ice Cream Wish” in March 2020, “My Family’s Soybean Farm” in January 2021, and “Barn at Night” in September 2021. Feeding Minds Press also offers several free printable books that focus on careers in agriculture. The book is available for purchase directly from Feeding Minds Press, as well as on Amazon.
