First Ever Aquaculture Book for Children
“Texas Farm Girl Aquaculture Farming” is the first of its kind, a true children’s book on “farming in water” for parents and children. Award winning children’s book Author, Rebecca Crownover’s latest publication in her “Texas Farm Girl” series introduces the importance of aquaculture to youngsters (and their parents reading to them) using bright illustrations and a simple, direct narrative told from the perspective of a young girl and her grandfather.
The “Texas Farm Girl” collection, published by Mascot Books, exposes pre-school and primary school age children to the hard work, dedication and importance of farming, first on land and now in huge covered aquatic ponds.
“I try to educate very young readers to life experiences and leave them with a moral that, I hope, will stay with them throughout their journey to adulthood,” said Ms Crownover.
Ms Crownover is not only a prolific writer but also a mother and a farmer. Her commitment to sustainable farming and conservation of the Earth’s resources led her to becoming a director of the International Foundation for the Conservation of Natural Resources (IFCNR).
The official launch of “Texas Farm Girl Aquaculture Farming” is scheduled for February 7th and 8th in Austin, Texas where she intends to present a copy of her book to the Honorable Joe Straus, Speaker of the Texas House of Representatives and to members of the House and Senate Agriculture Committees.
Ms. Crownover will follow her visit to Austin with book signings in Dallas, Sunray, and Rockport, Texas before traveling to the Boston Seafood Show in March and later for a signing and presentation to Members of Congress in Washington DC.
