I’m so excited to reveal the cover of my latest picture book!
Food for the Future: Sustainable Farms Around the World by Mia Wenjen, illustrated by Robert Sae-Heng
This is a rhyming picture book featuring twelve unusual farms around the world. From vertical gardens in Singapore to ancient terrace farms in Chile, humans have innovated with sustainable farms throughout history. How do we feed our planet? Here are 12 ways we can grow food while caring for our planet! [picture book, ages 3 and up]
Food for the Future: Sustainable Farms Around the World comes out spring of 2023 through Barefoot Books.
I am a Barefoot Books Community Bookseller so I will be selling them through my blog for anyone who wants a signed copy.
Thank you so much to the talented Robert Sae-Heng and the amazing team at Barefoot Books including my editor Lisa Rosinsky and CEO Nancy Traversy who came up with the title! Many, many hands at Barebook Books both here in Concord, MA, and across the pond helped to shape and improve my text. My deep thanks to everyone! It has been such a fun process to make this book with them!
