Farm to Book Storytime®

Farm to Book Storytime® teaches your children about the sources of their food – how it is produced, grown, and transported from farm to table.  It also introduces new foods and flavors from different cultures and countries to help your children learn about how people use food to celebrate and share. We make these concepts accessible and fun for young children by using children’s literature read by a Spoons Across America Food Educator

In each video, there are foods that we encourage you to have your children taste and explore, and that correlate to the food discussed in the book. After watching a Farm to Book Storytime® video, we recommend that you give your children the opportunity to smell, taste, and talk about the new and unfamiliar foods mentioned in the book and learn about different cultures and customs.


Learning about new foods and tasting them will inspire your children to become adventurous eaters and to develop curiosity about taste, where their food is grown, and how different cultures use spices, and fresh ingredients in their cooking.

We have over 50 books and activities! Here are a few to get started!

Click on a video to get started - We've prepared fun activity sheets and a virtual reading from our Spoons Educators!
