Sen. Victory highlights American Farm Bureau’s 2020 Book of the Year

LANSING, Mich.Sen. Roger Victory and members of the Senate Agriculture Committee on Thursday received copies of the American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture 2020 Book of the Year from Rebecca Park of the Michigan Farm Bureau.

“Full of Beans: Henry Ford Grows a Car” by Peggy Thomas is a nonfiction children’s book that describes Henry Ford’s fascination with the soybean. Ford was raised on a Michigan farm and sought to help farmers find a new market following the Great Depression. One eventual result was a prototype car made of soy plastic.

“Reading is one of the most important things you can do to be successful in school and in life,” said Victory, R-Hudsonville. “This wonderful book tells the true story of the role agriculture played in the life of one of Michigan’s most famous leaders, and I look forward to sharing it with Ottawa County students during March for National Reading Month.”
