"Picking berries is sweet family fun. We go to local farms to pick. We empty our baskets to wash them up. Strawberries are yummy in my tummy."

"Corn can be made into flour, bread, and can be eaten fried or boiled. It is in many foods. Corn can be fed to people and animals. Corn is a part of the vegetable group. Corn, eat it up!"
