Rebecca, Sheridan and Rianna Chaney have written a fifth book in the “The Chaney Twins' Ag Series," this time set in Nebraska.

The book, “Our Star Goes West” follows the girls' beloved cow Star from their farm in Maryland to their new home on a 3,500-acre ranch in south central Nebraska.

The girls have new experiences, such as branding day, roping, watering cattle that are fed on cornstalks, swimming in huge cattle watering tanks, showing and judging livestock, rounding up cattle and learning how ranchers and cattle help the environment and wildlife.

Books in the series are written by the twin girls, Rianna and Sheridan, and edited by their mother Rebecca, according to a press release from the editor.

The 32 pages are full of color photographs by a professional photographer. The easy-to-read text is geared toward preschool and elementary children. The books have been selected by numerous Farm Bureau groups, Ag in the Classroom programs and county and state cattle women's organizations as their “Accurate Ag Book.”

The first four books, and accompanying lesson plans, are in the USDA national resource directory for agriculture in the classroom, in addition to the American Farm Bureau Literacy list.

For more information, go to www.rebeccalongchaney.com or call 308-785-8064.

The books' co-creator is Kelly Hahn Johnson of Sharpsburg, Md.

Special discounts are available for box orders for ag groups.
