Sharing Minnesota Children's Stories
As part of I Love to Read Month, Patrick "Packy" Mader is always happy to return to a school classroom. The former elementary school teacher loves sharing the four children's pictures books he was written which have positive messages and a rural Minnesota setting.
Agriculture education is a component of Packy's engaging and entertaining presentation to primary grades. He brings an authentic milking machine from the dairy farm he was raised, large storyboards, and a big cow marionette as props. For intermediate grades, he asks and answers questions about the illustrations, messaging, editing, and shows how a book is printed and assembled.
