Join award-winning Kansas children's author Lindsay H. Metcalf for a special storytime with her new book, Outdoor Farm/Indoor Farm! This event is for readers of all ages, and books will be available for sale and signing!

ABOUT THE BOOK

Discover how both outdoor and indoor farms sustainably grow the food we eat throughout the year in this vibrant, rhyming picture book.

Outdoor farm,
tractors toil.

Indoor farm,
zero soil.

With energetic, enchanting verse and sunshiny, colorful illustrations, discover how the food you eat is grown both outside—and inside! Join two children as they explore the inner workings of an outdoor farm and an indoor farm. You’ll see how a variety of amazing machinery like tractors and drones along with innovative farming techniques yield the wonderful food we all love to enjoy.
